St. Baldricks Foundation

I am going to quite shamelessly use my blog as advertisement or endorsing or whatever it is...for the St. Baldrick's Foundation.

What is the St. Baldrick's Foundation? Well they raise money for Children's Cancer Research. But not in any conventional way. They have huge events where tons of people come together and get their heads shaved in honor of kids that lose their hair due to chemotherapy treatments. Stefani lost her hair during a real rough part of chemo. And last year she happened to be an honoree at the event in Steven's Point, WI. We have formed a team and are raising money this year. We have a goal of $2000. It just so happens that we were a two person team and one of our team members is having a commitment problem, so.....

I would love it if you could visit their website: It is a worthy cause. If you would like to donate, it would be great if you donated to the "Stevens Point/The Ridges" event. If you want to directly donate to our team, we are called the "Dooger Doo's" and my husband Anthony Mareno is our team captain (and at this time our sole participant). :)

My daughter had an extremely curable version of cancer. But that was only because they have done research for 30+ years and have found a way to cure it. Please consider helping in any way.
