I shaved to raise money for childhood cancer research

For those of you that are not aware, one of the main reasons I am shaving my head for the St. Baldrick's event on April.10th in Stout Fidi is in HONOR of my Cousin's daughter, Leah. The donations I have received and are continuing to receive are to fund lifesaving Children's Cancer Research through the St Baldricks Foundation.

LEAH’S STORY

My Cousin Aileen's daughter’s life changed forever on January 23rd 2015. Her daughter, Leah, took a tumble at school and after a trip to the E.R, she was diagnosed with a cyst and a tumor in her brain and hydrocephalus(swelling & pressure In her head). Leah had to have two brain biopsy's, a shunt placed in her head to alleviate the pressure & swelling & numerous other surgeries. She also suffered a hemorraghic stroke which paralyzed the right side of her body. They were able to diagnose the tumor being pilocytic astrocytoma and straight away started chemotherapy. Leah, then had to go to rehab to help overcome the problems from the stroke. As you all can imagine it was an extremely difficult time for the Carmody family. Two years later, Leah is 7yrs old and slowly turning into the bright beautiful spark that she once was after being sick, tried and exhausted from everything that she had to go through. As of January 2017 Leah was at her six months post chemo and thankfully no re-growth of the brain tumor. Leah still has a long road ahead but she is definitely in a better place and is hopeful for the future.
