St Baldricks Head Shaving to raise funds for childhood cancer research
Sunday, Mar 11, 2012 · 2:00 pm
Dr Erana, Laura Ilgun, and Ruth Anne Herring of V E Cook Cancer Center in McAllen.
On behalf of the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, we are seeking your participation in an
event that could save a child’s life. What began as a challenge among friends has grown into the world’s largest fund raising event for childhood cancer.
Every year, thousands of brave men, women, and children give up their locks to raise money for childhood cancer research. Youngsters in treatment typically lose their hair, so volunteers shave their heads in public as a bold act of solidarity.
Please join us as a donor, shavee or volunteer at the Rio Grande Valley St. Baldrick’s event this year. Don’t miss the silent auction and all the fun of watching the shaving on March 11th !
Each shavee and volunteer collects donations from local businesses, their friends and family to support life-
saving childhood cancer research.
Worldwide, 160,000 kids are diagnosed with cancer each year and despite tremendous progress, cancer remains the #1
disease killer of children in the U.S. and Canada.
While battling cancer, children lose not only their hair but years of their childhood, and sometimes their lives. In comparison, shaving your head is a small sacrifice.
