Find Out How You Can Help a Good Cause [VIDEO]

NJ 101.5 listener Fred called in asking for our help in getting the word out to help a good cause. St. Baldrick’s is a worldwide event where barbers and beauticians gather to shave people’s heads to show solidarity to those who are losing their hair to chemotherapy.  St. Baldrick’s donates to medical research to help stop childhood cancers. Find out how you can help below.

You can read part of Fred’s story below…

I got involved last year because of a high school friend named Sharon who lost her battle to cancer in 2011. Even though St. Baldrick’s is dedicated strictly to childhood cancers up to age 22 (I believe). This year, it takes on a more personal connection.

A friend of ours, Rose, her granddaughter at 4 has been diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL). My understanding is that she will be on chemo for the next 2 years. So, St. Baldrick’s kind of works like the March of Dimes. Folks could ask for donations and in exchange, they will have their heads shaved (instead of walking 20 miles).

Getting donations from people does not by any means mandate you get shaved, but most who do it, do it in solidarity for a friend or relative who are losing their hair due to cancer treatment or chemotherapy.

Fred provided a personal donation page here where you can donate to help Adreana.
