When Newfane Middle School announced that they were partnering with Roswell Park Alliance Foundation, in the Bald for Bucks campaign, Shari was all set to shave her head in honor of Uncle Robby (Bob Barends, who worked for the foundation until his passing in 2012) and her Aunt Lori who lost her fight with cancer in 2004. She and I had a long conversation about her shaving her head before her dance showcase June. Robert, being the inquisitive five year old that he is, heard our conversation and said, "I'll do it Shari! I'll get my head shaved for you instead."
On Friday, February 17th, Robert will be shaving his head in support of his sister and in remembrance of the family we lost. In June Shari will be shaving her head and donating all her hair.
In addition, I wanted to let you know about a great reward that you can receive if you make a donation this month. During the month of February, if you donate $50 or more to my fundraising efforts, you will receive a limited edition Buffalo Sabres and Bald for Bucks t-shirt! Rolled up inside some of the t-shirts will be game tickets and exclusive Buffalo Sabres autographed merchandise. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to make a difference in the fight against cancer.
Every single donation helps!
