My friend Shannon e-mailed me the official update on her nephew, Travis, who shaved his head on St. Patrick's Day to raise money for children's cancer research. (Just joining us? Read one of my previous posts about Travis.)
Travis raised a grand total of $400 for the St. Baldrick's organization! Woo hoo! Way to go! Shannon also sent me some great "before", "after", and "during" photos of the head shave. His mom reports that he is doing fine, but his head is cold. He's not quite ping-pong-ball bald -- more like Demi-Moore-in-G.I.-Jane bald -- but I figure that's bald enough.
Again, I want to thank everyone who donated after reading about the event on this blog. You guys are great.
And while we're on the topic of raising money for cancer research, (cough, cough) there's only ONE WEEK left to buy your ticket in the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation's Raffle for Research. Just throwing that out there.
