HORU February 22, 2016


(1/2) "Last summer, my uncle passed away from cancer and because of him, I really wanted to make a difference in someone else's life. After searching the internet and finding St. Baldrick's, I knew I had found the perfect way to make a difference; shave my head and donate money to support those with childhood cancer, to raise awareness, and to do it all in remembrance of my uncle Steve. I set my goal at $2,000 and didn't even think I'd reach it. After a month, I was almost there, so I decided to keep raising my goal until I finally reached a total of $4,678 by the day of my shave. I had also found another group to support; the Angel Hair Foundation, which takes healthy hair and uses it to make wigs for children with cancer. It feels really good supporting two separate organizations. It may be for the same cause, but I feel as though I helped two different people instead of one, which is a super cool feeling. And showing love for Uncle Steve has been really special to me too."
