It's unbelievable that statisticians say that half of all men and one third of all women in the US will get cancer in their lifetime. When I heard this number, I was blown away. We shouldn't wait until someone very close is diagnosed to take this disease seriously, chances are it could be yourself.
100% of every dollar donated goes directly to cancer research at Fred Hutch. I am infamous for my hair, and the lack of it commonly identifies someone as diagnosed with cancer. For the last six years, I've shaved my head.
This year, I want to do something different. If we reach my fundraising goal, I'll continue to grow my hair until I can donate it.
