I have written about St. Baldrick's, the cancer research-support organization before on this blog. Their method of fundraising is to encourage people to SHAVE THEIR HEADS and get people to sponsor them. That's an act of courage and solidarity with cancer patients, who often lose their hair as a side effect of their chemotherapy treatments.
I wrote about Lexus (who is my fellow blogger ChiTown Girl's son) here, shaving his head again this year in Katie's honor.
If you would like to learn more and visit his fundraising page, clickhere, and if you are so moved, pledge to support his efforts. And to those of you who have already donated, THANK YOU!
