46 Mommas Shave for the Brave

Each weekday in the United States, 46 mothers are told that their child has cancer.

The 46 Mommas represent all mothers who make the cancer journey with their child. Our annual teams are comprised of women from across the U.S., with different backgrounds, beliefs and lifestyles; there is one thing that they have in common — childhood cancer.

In 2010, our inaugural team took the name 46 Mommas Shave for the Brave and established a fundraising goal of $1 million for The St. Baldrick’s Foundation. Each year, a new class of 46 Mommasis inducted into the cause to empower and engage mothers of children with cancer.Through increasing awareness of childhood cancer and raising funds for childhood cancer research by shaving our heads, we hope to one day be a group that no longer needs to exist.

Help people with Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple sclerosis (or MS) is a chronic, often disabling disease that attacks the central nervous system (CNS), which is made up of the brain, spinal cord, and optic nerves. Symptoms may be mild, such as numbness in the limbs, or severe, such as paralysis or loss of vision. The progress, severity, and specific symptoms of MS are unpredictable and vary from one person to another. Today, new treatments and advances in research are giving new hope to people affected by the disease.

From them: We have decided to complete the 3 peaks challenge in rememberence of a very special little boy called Harry Moseley – our aim is to carry on with his legacy and hopefully raise some money in the process! Below is Harrys story…

Harry Moseley was an incredibly brave 11 year old boy who was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumour at the age of seven. Despite being poorly himself Harry set up the Help Harry help others campaign, making bracelets in the hope that he could raise enough money to find a cure for brain cancer as he hated seeing people poorly like him.
