In 2006, my dear Aunt and Godmother, Julie Christine, lost her 8 year battle with breast cancer. On April 14th, I am going to shave my head for cancer research.
I started growing my hair 2 years ago to donate it to Locks of Love. I have done this before and decided to shave it all off to raise money for Susan G. Komen.
Will you help me raise money for cancer research???
My aunt Julie was an avid supporter of Susan G. Komen and I plan on donating to that organization.
I know the recent political environs might deter some from donating to the cause, but I ask that you think about the actual cancer patients who fight so courageously for life before you think of politics.
If you really just CANNOT donate to Komen, you are in luck. I am splitting the money between Komen and the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation. My uncle Steve also lost a short battle with Cancer of the Digestive System. He lived many years battle Crohn's and I'd like to honor his memory too. Please be sure to check out that page if you want to donate there instead.
The Big Hair Shaving Event will take place at:
St. Paul United Methodist Church
3601 S. Sterling Ave.
Independence, MO 64052
Please come to the service right beforehand. See me with the best hairdo I will ever have before I shave it all off!
Peace and blessings to all!
