I did it!! Check me out at about 2:05. Yeah so, they didn't show my interview because I was rambling like an idiot. However, I have evidence here that I actually did travel to Washington DC to shave my head in the name of pediatric cancer research.
I also went to Capitol Hill and got the opportunity to meet with legislative reps in an effort to draw more awareness: Kids get cancer too. We need new medicines that are more effective in fighting cancer with less toxic side effects.
The best part was spending a few days with mommas like me that have a fire lit under them to do ANYTHING that can potentially help find a cure. I remember reading something a man shaving for St. Baldricks once said: "If me shaving my head, raises the $1 for THE petri dish that finds the cure for cancer, then it's the least I can do". <3
