BENEFITING: St. Baldrick's Foundation
What I'm doing is raising money and shaving my head on March 2nd. The money I raise goes to research a cure for cancer and treatments. As well, the symbol of shaving my head shows my stand in solidarity and support of all fighting cancer.
One of the reasons I feel compelled to do this is that my mother had breast cancer. She is a strong fighter and beat it, but I will forever remember how hard it was for her to lose her hair.
While I'm choosing to shave my head, these people never get to decide to. It is a very visual representation that there is somebody out there, a complete stranger rooting and supporting everybody who has go to through cancer.
