Shaving my head for St. Baldrick's

By Jessie ·
Blame it on Jaqui. I was going to wait until the 15th and start this thread, but his birthday is on the 13th, HAPPY BIRTHDAY JAQUI, and he wants you all to donate to childhood cancer research as a birthday present to him.

Also, I have a serious question in regard to fundraising at work; How should I approach my boss who's in another state in regards to company matching: email or phone call, and what do I say?

So that you all know why I am doing this; I spent 19 days of the month of July 2006 baking and taking food up to Children's Mercy Hospital for my step-sister, her husband, and their children while they were watching over their sweet infant baby Samuel Caine Hamilton as he lay dying. Sammy was diagnosed with rhabdoid cancer of the liver on July 8th of 2006. He was just 3 months and 1 week old. After two chemo treatments and several blood transfusions, Sammy passed away from his cancer on July 27 2006.

Rhabdoid cancer is an exceedingly rare and virulent form of childhood cancer. It mostly strikes children between 0 and 2 years old and the survival rate is only 20-25%. In solidarity with children who lose their hair due to chemo treatments, and in honor of my sweet baby nephew Sammy, I am shaving my head in a fundraiser for St. Baldrick's on March 15th of this year and I am asking for your sponsorship. All proceeds go to funding childhood cancer research.

If you'd like to donate on my head, go to this site: http://www.stbaldricks.org/participants/shavee_info.html?ParticipantKey=2008|21904

And for more of Sammy's story, go to this site: http://www.samuelcainecancerfund.com/

Thank you all in advance
Jessie

$250 is certainly not

by Jessie In reply to Survey said

a bad showing... so far...

Maybe everybody else is waiting for Jaqui's actual birthday on the 13th.

If you don't like Jaqui enough (can't imagine why... he's kinky but fun) ]:) to donate as a birthday present to him, just consider it a late birthday present for me I turned 29 again on January 21st.

Since we are in IT

by Jessie In reply to you know

I have to get technical. I actually had $75 toward my $1000 goal before I posted it here. THEN several of my friends here donated and brought it up to $250 for which I am very very grateful. And you're right, I've got a month from tomorrow to reach my goal.

Anybody who just wants to send me their change and not have to mess with donating online can peer mail me and I'll tell you where to send any cash/checks/money orders/change from your couch...
