46 Mommas Shave For The Brave



On September 21 at Union Station in Washington DC, 46 mothers from around the country will gather to shave their heads in solidarity with their children who have fought or are currently fighting cancer.  These 46 women call themselves the “46 Mommas.” Why the 46 Mommas? This group represents the startling reality that each weekday 46 families are told that their child has cancer. The Mommas come from all over the country, and there may be one from your area.  A complete list is below. September is National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month (proclaimed in 2010 by President Obama), which means it is the perfect time for the 46 Mommas to join together with the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, in supporting the Foundation’s mission to  “Conquer Kids’ Cancer!” The St. Baldrick's Foundation is a volunteer-driven charity committed to funding the most promising research to find cures for childhood cancers. http://46mommas.com/

Thank you for sharing this! So you know, my daughter Grace just had a clear MRI. On Sept. 20th, the day before I shave my head a 2nd time as a 46 Momma, Grace will be 4 years beyond her diagnosis. Hooray!!! Thanks again, Bekah
