I shaved to raise money for childhood cancer research with: Saints For A Cure

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.

I (Colin Dowd) am a childhood cancer survivor and it is now time to give back. I am currently over three years off-therapy and in remission! I was diagnosed right before I turned 18 when my doctors uttered the scary words "you have cancer." Ever since that day my life has changed in ways I could never imagine. My team of doctors diagnosed me with a form of cancer that is so rare, they did not even have a name for it. I am a proud patient of Boston Children's and the Jimmy Fund Clinic, so I was around kids with cancer all the time. After battling cancer and coming out on top, I am devoted to helping others battle cancer in any way possible. This will be the 2nd year in a row I am participating in this event and I have committed to doing it for every year to come. Please support me with any kind of 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. Thank you!
