St. Baldrick’s is the top children’s cancer foundation and does amazing work for kids with cancer and their families.
Their top fundraising event is a head-shaving program where people make pledges in support of a “shavee” who gets their head shaved in solidarity with kids with cancer who often lose their hair due to treatment.
I’ve formed a St. Baldrick’s UC Davis School of Medicine fundraising team and I’m also a shavee myself this year.
I did it last year too and was surprised I didn’t look too bad with a totally bald head.
As a cancer survivor myself, I feel very strongly about this amazing organization. They have also supported pediatric cancer research ongoing in my lab on cancer stem cells.
Please consider pledging a donation here by sponsoring me as I get my head shaved. Every donation helps!
