St. Baldrick's

Friends and family,

SSM Cardinal Glennon Children's Medical Center is truly a magical place. To paraphrase my aunt, there are angels in the rafters at Glennon. St. Baldrick's is a magical organization in and of themselves, by raising money to support pediatric cancer research. Combine the two and you have quite an experience!

On Saturday, March 8 Glennon will be sponsoring a St. Baldrick's event at Helen Fitzgerald's! Have you noticed lately how ratty my hair is starting to look? That's because I haven't touched it in months. I'm letting it grow out until March 8. Why? So that you can pay to see me get it shaved! Your donation to St. Baldrick's will help pay to shave me! Even more important, it will help to fund pediatric cancer research! How wonderful would it be to live in a world where there are no bald kids walking around avoiding playing with other kids so that they won't get an infection that will kill them? How wonderful would it be to live in a world where we won't have to explain to a crying mother that her baby has cancer? How wonderful would it be to live in a world where there is no such thing as chemotherapy? You can do your part in helping us to get there!

Whether you donate $1 or $1000, your help is appreciated! And you get to watch me get shaved! :)

I hope you can help in any way at all. Remember none of this money is going to me. None is going to Andy. It's all going to help fund pediatric cancer research.

Please go here for more information on donating to have my head shaved. My goal is to raise $2500 for St. Baldrick's. We will certainly do our part and your help is appreciated!

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Julie or myself at 314-646-1991.

Thank you all for your continued support as the Kelleys bring our life-changing journey to an end (with a positive outcome!).

Finally, please forward this on to anyone you can think of! Your co-workers, your boss, your friends, your family, etc.

Yes, I followed you here...ontop of beside. I have Internet Dyslexic paranoia, so I am afraid I follow people all over the internet. So Danny, about your head shaving. Though it is a grand gesture, is that kind of like redundant? I mean, maybe if you like promised to sing ABBA (his favorite band), maybe more people would show up...ontop of beside. How about getting a Maple Leaf tattoo on your head! I dunno, just some random thoughts!!
