The thought of cutting my hair for cancer first came to mind a year and a half ago when my friend Sarah’s grandmother was fighting cancer. In support of her grandma, Sarah wanted to cut her hair. “I’ll do it with you,” were the first words that came out of my mouth when she told me what she was planning on doing. I honestly just wanted to be a supportive friend and thought it was the right thing to say, not evening imagining what it would be like to follow through with it.
I think it is important to get involved in school or any head shaving event because then you are supporting people with cancer and you are telling the world that hair doesn’t matter as much as taking care of one another.
“It’s stories like Alex’s, featured in our new shave commercials, that make our team at Virgin Radio SO proud and excited to be part of Kids Cancer Care’s Shave a Lid for a Kid Campaign! We attended our first shave at Elboya School last April, and once the buzz from the clippers died down, 42 kids and seven teachers were rockin’ slick new do’s. Even more exciting is that they raised $57,000.
Share the video with 5 people and someone may be inspired to shave their head for children with cancer. The money raised could send a child with cancer to camp.Share it with 100 people and 50 people may be inspired to help. The money they raise could help save a child’s life.
I work with youth and they are very special to me. They bring so much joy to our lives and they are our future. It is heart-breaking to know that such young children are fighting every day for their lives. This is the reason why I have chosen to support the Kids Cancer Care Foundation and Angel Hair for Kids.
