Bald is Beautiful

Hi my name is Spencer.  I’m shaving for St. Baldrick’s again because my sister Tuesday died from Neuroblastoma on January 30th, 2009.  This is my second year and I want to do it for at least 7 years so I can get on the Knights of the Bald Table.  I’m shaving my head for St. Baldrick’s because it raises the most money for childhood cancer.  Please look at the St. Baldrick’s website.  You can join Team Tuesday too.  It doesn’t matter where you live.  I hope you will support me in finding a cure for childhood cancer.  Thank you.

I know.  Super sweet, huh?  Yes.  It kills me.  Go here to see the beautiful photos from last years’ event.  And then search for a St. Baldricks event in your area and sign up!  Or sign your kid up.  Or your husband.  Or your wife.  Or your neighbor.  Or your boss.  You may or may not want to ask their permission first.

Give big.  This will get us closer to finding a cure for her, and her, and him, and him, and the almost 13,000 kids that will be diagnosed with cancer this year.  And for the 1 in 5 that will die.  And all of them that will suffer life long side effects from treatment.  It takes all of us.  Not just those of us that have watched our children suffer and die.  It takes you.  It doesn’t only happen to other people’s kids.  Trust me.

    Ok – I’m totally signing my husband up. He did it last year (he’s a teacher, and the students sponsored him) with an event in the school, and I know he’d do it again! Do we have to come to the event?

  13. Brandi says:

    Spencer is much braver than I. I think about shaving my own head, and then I chicken out. I applaud Spencer and everyone else who is brave enough to be bald for a short time! Hugs!

    What comforting verses! Praying!
    Psalms 23:1-3 The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.

    Just found the location near our house. Arvada West HS on 3/4/11. Planning on having Bobby & Braeden both go that day.

  17. Lynn Worley says:

    Praying in Seattle!
    Psalms 23:4-6 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.

    We have such amazing eyewitness testimony of Jesus and just a fraction of what He did while He was visibly present here on earth. Look only to Him! Praying!
    1 John 1:1-4 That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life; (For the life was manifested, and we have seen it, and bear witness, and shew unto you that eternal life, which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us;) That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ. And these things write we unto you, that your joy may be full.

    Spencer…you are such a sweet kind hearted big brother. God Bless you! I will for sure donate and try to spread the word to get others to donate to Team Tuesday and get involved with St. Baldrick’s. If I am this proud of you, I can’t even imagine the pride that fills your Mama’s heart. <3
