Team Judy vs AML

THE STORY:

My mom was diagnosed with acute myelogenous leukemia (AML) in April. I can't fix it, and I can't make it go away. I can shave my head though, and then she won't have to be bald by herself. I love my long hair, but I'll give it up for my mom and for all the other families affected by AML. Help me raise $1000 for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. My mom is scheduled for a stem cell transplant next week. She starts another round of chemo in a couple of days, and then she and I will both head into the transplant with fresh heads. She's been in treatment for months and has more tough road ahead. If she can do this, the least I can do is lose some hair to raise a little money and awareness. AML causes more than 10,000 deaths in the U.S. every year. Fewer than 25% of newly diagnosed patients survive beyond five years. Therapy options for this leukemia have not changed in more than 30 years. That has to change. Learn more about LLS's efforts to Beat AML here: http://www.lls.org/beat-aml?msc=101200
