I shaved to raise money for childhood cancer research

I shaved to raise money for childhood cancer research

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.


It was painful enough for me to loose my father to cancer. I don't want to imagine the pain of a parent loosing their child to cancer. Soon after my father died, my mother said, "We need to do something to stop this damn disease." (she used a word stronger than damn, but you get the idea). I'm participating in this fundraiser in loving memory of my father, David Marvin Prass, z"l; I'm doing this in celebration of my 2 children who loved spending time with their Zayde (the picture on my profile is of the 3 of them); I'm doing this in celebration of my 1 child who never met him. I'm doing this in support of everyone who sees the beautiful potential in a child. And I'm doing this for all who want to stop this "damn disease" from taking that child away from their loved ones too soon.
The 36 Rabbis Shave for the Brave group was brought together in honor, and now in memory of Sam Sommer. To learn about his family, go to:

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!
