After a bit of hemming-and-hawing, I did decide to sign up to once again be a shavee at this year’s St. Baldrick’s event.  It’s about raising funds for childhood cancer research; for finding/creating more child-centered treatments that don’t take such a devastating toll on their tiny bodies as the adult treatments they are forced to use now do.  And it’s about supporting the kids who are currently at any stage of having to deal with cancer.

 

I do this in honor of my friend Matt’s daughter Sweet Sally Sunshine, who now battles seizures brought on by the harsh chemo that for now has removed the Infant ALL Leukemia from her body but has also damaged her white brain matter.  And it’s just one of the challenges she and her amazing family endure every day.  If you’d like to read about her journey, here’s her web page:  http://www.sweetsallysunshine.com/

 

This year’s St. Baldrick’s event will be held at Finn’s Tap Room in Victor on Sunday May 7th, starting at 1PM.  It’s a great venue and a wonderful environment – stop by to support us if you can!  Great food and drinks too J

 

Finn’s Tap Room

14 Railroad Street

Victor, NY

 

Long story short – if you’re of a mind to please think about making a donation – any donation is gratefully accepted.  Here’s a link to my page: https://www.stbaldri...age/924069/2017

 

Thanks as always!

Bump! I'm halfway to my goal of $660. If I make
That goal I will have raised $3000 for pediatric cancer research in the 3 years I've done this. And that would be pretty cool. My event is on 5/7 - 2 weeks from Sunday. Again any and all donations would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

This does make fund-raising a bit more difficult in this particular activity :)

 

Thanks to all who donated!  Here's the after-picture:
