Neuroblastoma. Immunotherapy. Malignant. These are words no child should know. Unfortunately, kids with cancer know them all too well. When a child suffers from cancer, a piece of their childhood is taken away, and their lives will never be the same. As a Chapter, we knew that we had the power to do something about it.
On Saturday, March 25th, our Chapter Members supported our local St. Baldricks event during their head-shaving event to raise money for kids’ cancer research. Because kids with cancer often lose their hair during treatment, “shavees” show their support by shaving their heads voluntarily, and inspiring friends and family to donate to the cause.
Our chapter members did it all. We participated in the St. Patrick’s Day parade in support of St. Baldricks before the hair-shaving event. We worked with event coordinators to man the registration tables, kept the head-shaving areas and food areas spotless. We even had our own table where our Chapter Members encouraged people to create a card with caring messages of support to the children battling cancer. These cards were then delivered that weekend to a local pediatric cancer hospital ward.
