I will shave my head to raise money for childhood cancer research. Sponsor me to help reach my goal of €1500.
Childhood cancer strikes more than children alone, it attacks whole families too. Did you know that almost half a million children will get cancer each year, and that in Europe and the US, one child out of 5 will die within 5 years from diagnosis? Did you know that there is little funding for childhood cancer research, with many treatment protocols dating 20, 30 or even 50 years? And that these treatment protocols are more intense than the ones for adults, and can last years?
I had no idea. But now that I do know, I want to help, because children can´t fight cancer alone. My fundraiser is in support of the St. Baldrick's Foundation, one of the most important childhood cancer research charities worldwide.
When you support them, you help fund critical trials and grants in more than 377 institutions in 30 countries.
This Saturday afternoon I will take part of a live event together with other families that will share their personal experiences with childhood cancer.
If you want, you can follow me live as I am getting my head shaved.
I am a bit nervous, but I know it´s going to be fun!
Please sponsor me to help me reach my goal of €1500 by this Saturday.
