That boy? The one that just turned twelve?
He has insisted on stealing my heart.
I mentioned in his birthday post that he was growing his hair out to donate it. Today he told me this:
On April 26th, we’re going to join some students at Indiana University and he’s going to take part in a St. Baldrick’s event, shaving his head to raise money and awareness for pediatric cancer.
This decision was not one he took lightly, and I’m so impressed with him, I can’t begin to describe it to you. His hair has become such a big part of his identity, and let’s face it, it’s tough being a tween/teen. This was something he slept on, thought about, and decided he was willing to do.
I am so proud of him. I can’t begin to explain it.
Anyway – if you would like to donate, we’d love that, but if you can’t donate, would you consider sharing his donation site via your social media of choice? Each tweet or FB post reaches out to someone else, and if we raise nothing more than awareness for the kids who are fighting cancer, that’s one more step.
