Hannah’s Heroes – Big Shave
September 28, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
We’re delighted to announce that the 6th Annual BIG SHAVE will take place on Friday 28 September, at Cricket Square. Please save the date as we unite to conquer childhood cancer.
Thanks to you and the Cayman community, over the past 5 years we’ve raised US $1.6 million for St Baldrick’s to fund the most promising childhood cancer research worldwide. Hannah’s Heroes have funded 6 separate research grants at some of the most prestigious research institutes across the US, where researchers are working on life changing treatments and cures.
However, we still need to do more, shockingly only 4 chemotherapy drugs have been approved by the FDA specifically for childhood cancer in the past 30 years, compared to 100s of drugs for adult cancers. What’s more, nearly all of the chemo drugs still used on children were developed in the 1970s.
Sadly, since our last Big Shave, there have been at least three more children in Cayman diagnosed with cancer and tragically, one lost his battle earlier this year; we need your help more than ever.
You can get involved in several ways:
● REGISTER to shave NOW and start growing your hair
● ORGANISE a dress down day or a bake sale at work
● DONATE, if shaving’s not for you – every dollar makes a difference.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your ongoing support.
