I became involved with St. Baldrick's in 2009 when I discovered a family friend had a daughter who was diagnosed with Acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Since then I've seen the passion and commitment of all involved in raising money for this charity. Worldwide, more than 160,000 children are diagnosed with childhood cancer each year. The St. Baldrick’s Foundation coordinates worldwide head-shaving events that raise money to support childhood cancer research. This is the 4rth year that I will be 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. Many of us are fortunate enough to have healthy children. This is an opportunity to help those who aren't so luck. Your gift will give hope to infants, children, teens and young adults fighting childhood cancers. Click here to make a donation and just for fun you can even request a photoshop image of me in some ridiculous situation. I will create it with a big thank you publicly on this page: http://www.stbaldricks.org/participants/mypage/503119/2012.
