I shaved to raise money for childhood cancer research with: SHS Faculty & Staff

I’m taking part in this year’s St Baldrick’s head shaving fundraiser and I hope you’ll take this opportunity to donate to research on childhood cancer.

My story: I thought shaving my head would be no big deal. I signed up for my school’s event on a whim, but I’ve been caught short by the emotions it’s stirred up. As a knitter, I have plenty of hats I can wear till my hair grows back. But when I think about slipping a hat onto my bald head, I think about two dear friends who were diagnosed with cancer 7 years ago. These two friends have schooled me about how to live when you know you have a limited time on this earth.

Liz taught me about how to walk a difficult path with dignity and grace and I think of her every day. At her memorial, a friend remembered her saying “If this is the path I’m on, then this is the path I’m on.” I hear those words in my head every day now and I strive to walk my path with the same courage and dignity that Liz walked hers.

Mark is alive and thriving today thanks to ongoing research in the treatment of multiple myeloma. He has run through several treatment regimens—each time one has failed there’s been another one ready to go—and that can only happen because cutting-edge research is happening. Mark has taught me about challenging yourself and seizing opportunities. Mark also taught me that fundraising is important, which is why I’m telling you my story and asking you to donate to this cause. Thank you.
