I had the extreme pleasure and honor of attending three incredible St. Baldrick's events in Philadelphia this month.
They. Were. AWESOME!
It's difficult to describe the energy, the enthusiasm, the JOY of these events. Seeing people pass around a hat, filling it with cash (going towards research) amounting to $1000 to see two guys shave off their beards and mustaches in addition to their heads almost made me fall off of my chair.
Attempting to unite the many childhood Cancer foundations with similar, if not the same goals (some dedicated to specific diseases, others focused on quality of life issues or providing comfort rather than research) is a monumental task, and I so appreciate PAC2 for providing an open forum where information can be shared so that our community can become more aware of itself.
Awareness about childhood Cancer awareness? Yes. It's desperately needed.
