    Help fight childhood cancer

    A police officer on a different board posted this, and I would like to encourage everyone to help out:

    The first St. Baldricks Day was created as a result of a challenge among friends. Their idea to transform an annual St. Patricks Day party into St. Baldricks and raise $17,000 on March 17th for research is expected to raise $7 million in this, its 7th year.

    Since its inception in 2000, St. Baldricks has raised more than $12 million and grown into the worlds best-known program for childhood cancer and its not surprising the cause is so compelling. Despite tremendous progress against the disease, childhood cancer remains the #1 disease killer of children. In fact, 22% of the children diagnosed today will lose their battle. Fortunately, researchers believe a cure is possible within our lifetime provided the funds are available to find it.

    The St. Baldricks Foundation grants event proceeds to research organizations like the Childrens Oncology Group, whose 5,000 members and 230 institutions collaborate to speed progress against cancer more quickly than if hospitals worked independently; and to establish St. Baldricks Fellowships, to encourage promising new medical professionals to pursue pediatric cancer research as a specialty.

    Unlike many of these children who face an uncertain future, I am lucky enough to know that my hair will grow back. So, if a little off the top will help save the life of a child, its a small price to pay.

    Please consider making a tax-deductible donation to the St. Baldricks Foundation by sponsoring me to shave my head. To make a donation, contact me by e-mail tony_tonya@yahoo.com. to learn more about the event and the cause we support, visit www.StBaldricks.org, .

    I hope you will join me In Wheeling on 3/3/2006 at 5pm to watch as I help shave the way to Conquer Kids Cancer!

    Thank You

    Anthony

    My best friend's 4 year old daughter died of cancer recently. Seeing what he went through, and being a part of it however I could, was one of the hardest things I can imagine. Definitely a good cause, sounds like a good guy.

    Hello Everyone,

    I am the Man that is helping to run this event. Im sure almost all of you have a cancer story as touching as Virginian's. Please find it in your hearts to donate. No amount is to small, every penny counts.

    The Easiest way to donate would to donate directly on the st baldricks site.
    http://www.stbaldricks.org/ShaveePho...umber=15328098 That is a link to site to donate with a check card or credit card.

    If you don't want to donate online you can e-mail me at tony_tonya@yahoo.com and I will let you know where you can send a check or money order to.

    Thank you and God Bless

    Kudos to you Reca!

    Cancer can be a very devastating disease. I've known kids and adults who have succumbed from this disease. Thank you for taking part in this.

    A Smile

    A smile cost nothing, but gives so much.

    It enriches those who receive it,
    without making poorer those who give.
    It takes but a moment, but the memory
    of it sometimes lasts forever.

    None is so rich or mighty that he
    can get along without it,
    and none is so poor but that
    he can be made rich by it.

    A smile creates happiness in the home,
    fosters goodwill in business,
    and is the countersign of friendship.

    It brings rest to the weary,
    cheer to the discouraged, sunshine to the sad,
    and it is nature's best antidote for trouble.

    Yet it cannot be bought, begged, borrowed,
    or stolen, for it is something that is of no
    value to anyone until it is given away.

    Some people are too tired to give you a smile.
    Give them one of yours, as none needs a smile
    so much as he who has no more to give.
