We Belong To Each Other.
This is one of my mantras, one of the things that helps me make sense of so many things in this world. Participating in St. Baldrick’s is my solid-real-life proof that we do, indeed, belong to each other.
This year was record-breaking for us…we surpassed our fund-raising goal but we also were a comfort to so many people. We helped to spread awareness to many that childhood cancer treatment options are grossly underfunded and helped to empower SO MANY KIDS that they could be the ones to help change this statistic. Yes, I’m proud of the work we did this year, and so proud of our little William for Braving the Shave!Love him so much…he’s such a helper and supporter of St. B’s, and of my time spent with the Foundation. Cousins who go bald together…These moments with our Will, Sam and Brother Will were absolutely priceless memories I’ll hold forever. Sam and Will are the nephews of my friend Abbey Foltz, whom we do this event in honor of. The friendship between these three is, as Abbey’s mom says, truly made in heaven. ♥This year, all 4 Jackson Elementary Schools formed teams for St. B’s. Here is Will with his school’s team captain, Mr. Lawver. Listen, I’ve been to 9 years of St. Baldrick’s events, seen hundreds of people shaving their heads…but when our little boy went up on that stage to shave, whoa. I was filled with emotion that I didn’t expect and was beyond proud of this little man. Cousin Charlie!Thankful for our friend, Dan, and his support…always love seeing those sweet girls of his too.Gah! What a day. Thank you to the many who supported William and the St. Baldrick’s Foundation. Click here to keep up with the Canton Event’s total!
