St. Baldrick's Foundation
July 18, 2014

The St. Baldrick's Foundation signature fundraising effort is head shaving events...to shave in solidarity with kids who have cancer. As the premier organization funding pediatric cancer research exclusively it is an honor to raise money for this charity-and shave my head. It will change your life. My son battled cancer for 3 years before he passed away and I credit St. Baldrick's with giving me a purpose and giving me hope for families that have yet to hear those dreaded words "your child has cancer." The entire journey is life changing and through most of the medical journey you feel like you have little control. Shaving my head helped me feel powerful. It is an awesome foundation where kids are at the heart of everything. With so little government funding and about zero pharmaceutical money to support research, St. Baldrick's has a huge mission and I am happy to do my part!

St. Baldrick's Foundation
February 5, 2013

I have been donating to St. Baldrick's Foundation since my son got sick with cancer. I've shaved my head too. But volunteering and actually hosting an event was the most amazing experience! It was so easy to create the event, use the web tools and coaching and raise a lot of money. I feel lucky that such an amazing organization exists and focuses soley on the needs of funding kids cancer research! I love being bald and now I have learned how to run an event and love St. Baldrick's even more!
