THE STORY:

Collin Bishop wrote -

Cancer sucks! It's indiscriminate, ruthless, and uncaring. It's taken the life of my grandfather and an aunt. It's infected my grandmother, father, and now one of my closest friends. I've had enough. I'm raising money for the Lymphoma Research Foundation in honor of Bruce Headings, a friend who is more like a brother without the genetic connection. He was diagnosed with B Cell Lymphoma while living in Guam. He, his wife Rachel, and three young children have all moved back to the states (Iowa) for his treatment. The cancer is highly aggressive but also has a high cure rate. He's had two rounds of chemo and more on the way. Since I can't be there to help them, I wanted to do something else. First, I nearly shaved my head as a symbol of solidarity, but my fundraising-minded wife pointed out that the gesture alone would be a missed opportunity. So, my new plan, which is mostly her idea but I like it, is to shave my head after I've raised $2,500. All donations are appreciated. If you can't donate, please share with others or join this cause and fundraise as well. I'm done watching cancer impact the lives of the ones I love. Let's help prevent this disease for others. Thanks, Collin
