Why is Greg Shaving his head?
As the father of 4 beautiful and healthy children, I know the fear and worry that I carry that pain or suffering would come to any of my children. That is why, the Nevada Childhood Cancer Foundation is one of the charities that I hold dear in my heart. No parent should have to face the possibility of losing their child. The sad fact is, that many do. While I cannot spare them the challenges that they face on their journey to fight children’s cancer, I can make sure that they are not alone in their fight. And, you can, too.
Since 1993, the Mission of the Nevada Childhood Cancer Foundation has been to work side by side with the medical community to provide social, emotional, educational, financial and psychological support services and programs to families of ALL children diagnosed with a life threatening or critical illness such as cancer, HIV/AIDS, sickle cell, hemophilia, renal disorders and other immunologic diseases.
The foundation offers over 25 programs and services facilitated by both caring professionals and staff members to ensure that a critically ill child and their family members are given hope for the future and the strength and courage to fight the daily battle against disease.
They work tirelessly to fulfill the needs of families facing the battle against terminal illness: assistance in supplying a child’s required medication, providing transportation for doctor appointments, providing food and clothes to struggling families, offering free psychological counseling to those without insurance, and providing the opportunity for children to continue their education while they battle disease.
They take these frightened children and their families by the hand and let them know they won’t go through this alone.
I strongly support this organization. If you are able, I ask you to join me in supporting these children and their families.
