My Sam died December 14th. He fought a valiant fight. My good friend's Sam died a few weeks earlier surrounded by love and family. I've spent fifteen years shaving my head for no reason other than my own vanity. I must grow my hair out for three months to have something to shave in March. I will suffer the indignity of looking scruffy and ugly for months to honor my son and his courage.
We achieved my first goal of $18,001 in two weeks. I've been encouraged to raise my goal to $36,001. 18 in hebrew is Chai - Life - 36 is considered Double Chai. May no child suffer what my child, my family and countless other families will suffer before we find a cure. Let us be the difference.
The villainy of childhood cancer must be stopped. The answer is out there. Some doctor/researcher is on the right track. I would have set my goal for a million dollars, but even that is just a drop in the bucket. I keep getting told that a million dollars isn't even enough to make a dent. So what is enough to save the life of even one child?
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. Thank you!
