I shaved to raise money for childhood cancer research

Many of you know that the son of friends and colleagues, Rabbis Phyllis and Michael Sommer, had a relapse of his cancer. I am heartbroken. Sam passed away December 14, 2013. Sam was only 8 years old. I am joining more than 80 colleagues to raise money for pediatric cancer research in the hope that we can spare another child and another family from this fate. I've answered the call to be a hero! I'm having my head shaved to stand in solidarity with kids fighting cancer, but more importantly, to raise money to find cures. Please support me with a donation to the St. Baldrick's Foundation. This volunteer-driven charity funds more in childhood cancer research grants than any organization except the U.S. government.Your gift will give hope to infants, children, teens and young adults fighting childhood cancers. So when I ask for your support, I'm really asking you to support these kids. Yes, with Cathy’s consent, I will be shaving my head. The date for this event is scheduled for March 31, 2014. However, due to my travel plans, I will be shaving my head as part of our Purim celebration on March 15th after the Shpiel and before the Purim Carnival! I hope that you will join me in this effort and come cheer me on on the 16th. Thank you! Click "Make a donation" to give online, or donate by phone or mail.
