Did you know that kids’ cancers are different from adult cancers? It’s true. And childhood cancer research is extremely underfunded. So we decided to do something about it by raising money for cures.

Now we need your help! Will you make a donation? Every dollar makes a difference for the thousands of infants, children, teens, and young adults fighting childhood cancers.

Be a Shavee or Donor!
To be “Shavee” – resgister at:
then ask for pledges (donations made on the website)

For Girls and Women who do not want to shave their heads but want to donate, you can donate 8 inches of your hair for Children With Hair Loss – Register by emailing stmelyouthministry@gmail.com
