THIS IS MY 5TH YEAR SHAVING MY HEAD WITH the Gonzaga Lacrosse team in the Be Brave and Shave to support cancer research at Children's National Health System in Washington, D.C. Thank you for considering a donation to support me and the children fighting cancer!
On May 12th, I will celebrate my fundraising success and symbolically join children who lose their hair because of chemotherapy by shaving my head!
Progress to treat childhood cancer has occurred because of investments in research. Be Brave and Shave proceeds benefit the Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders at Children's National to create the Lexi Speight Professorship in Pediatric Oncology, an endowed professorship created in memory of 8 year old Lexi Speight. In her memory, we fight to identify innovative therapies to treat, and ultimately find a cure for, childhood cancer.
