Support Eva in her fight against cancer

Eva

TOMORROW is Eva's shaving!

Eva V is the daughter of some very close friends of mine. Her dad is a pediatrician and her mom is a pediatric oncologist, so kid's health and kid's cancer are topics with which she is very familiar. Her dad has participated in the St Baldrick's fundraiser for pediatric cancer research for the last several years, and this year Eva has decided to shave her head in support of pediatric cancer as well!

She is ten years old, and I've got to hand it to any ten year old girl who's brave enough to go bald for this cause.

So if you are someone who's inclined to support the St Baldrick's Foundation against kid's cancer, or if you just want to support a brave young girl, then by all means please wander over to her donor page and toss her a couple of bucks!


As always, we do this in remembrance of Nathan Gentry and Henry Scheck, who lost their battles with cancer.

  1. Thank you for letting us know about Eva. She's a very brave and compassionate girl who sounds like she also has amazing parents and friends. I don't know if I could have done the same thing at her age, and I definitely know I wouldn't have even considered it as a teenager. I hope, now that I'm much, much older, that I can have the same level of commitment to something that I believe in.

    It's nice to have role models... and 10 year-old ones may be the best.
