When you are sorrowful look again in your heart,
and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight.

St. Baldrick's Foundation

Good Morning Everyone.

Tracy Kenny Scalise (Katie Frisbie's sister) is shaving her head in honor of Erin and other kids whose lives have been affected by cancer.
Her letter is copied below. You may click on the "St. Baldrick's Home Page" link to find out more about this fabulous organization that helps fund pediatric cancer research, and if you would like to help Tracy meet her goal, you may follow her instructions to navigate to her homepage.

You heard it right – I'm shaving my head in solidarity with children fighting cancer who typically lose their hair during treatment, while I raise critical funds for childhood cancer research!
In the US, more children die of childhood cancer than any other disease.
Please make a donation on my behalf to support childhood cancer research so that all children diagnosed with cancer will have a better chance for a cure.
Help me reach my goal of $15,000!

  1. This is such a wonderful way to honor your beautiful daughter's life. A young man in Chicago is doing this in Katie's memory, and I can't tell you how much I appreciate it (but you probably know)!
    Go, Tracy!
