St. Baldricks!!!

Hello friends!! I wanted to take this time to talk about an amazing Foundation. St. Baldrick's is a childhood cancer advocacy foundation that raises money for the research that is so desperately needed right now to cure this terrible disease. Childhood cancer is the #1 killer of children with one child being diagnosed every 3 seconds worldwide.  For more information please visit their website www.stbaldricks.org

My dear cousin, McKenna, is 12 years old and she has signed up to be a "Shavee" at one of the thousands of events that are held across the country for St. Baldrick's; which means this brave girl will be shaving her head! Shavee's also raise money for the organization and all funds raised go directly to research for childhood cancer cures.  You can click here to go to her page to make a donation or even just to check things out! 

I will be there on May 2nd at Dummer School in Sandwich, IL to take pictures for McKenna. I am unfortunately not a direct volunteer for the Foundation but I hope to be very soon. I will be posting pictures of the event as soon as possible - I'm probably going to be too pumped to wait so they will most likely be posted the minute I get home on the 2nd :o)

Please stay tuned!!
