Let's welcome Abby - one of our five 2017 Ambassadors!

Her mom Patty says, “We are active with St. Baldrick's because Abby has been fighting cancer for 6 years. Abby’s cancer free, but side effects from her life saving bone marrow transplant have been close to life ending.” Read more of Abby's story: http://bit.ly/2iN9SMM

We don’t collect hair donations, but volunteers are welcome to shave their heads at a 2017 St. Baldrick’s event & donate their hair to another organization.

It’s a great way to help two charities at once, and we'll show you how in five easy steps!

Taking chemo meds every single day can be tough for a kid with cancer.

Unfortunately, Dr. Bhatia found that not swallowing that little pill can have big consequence. According to her study results, anything less than 95% adherence was associated with an increased risk of relapse among kids with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL).
