I am raising money for a cause I care very strongly about, pediatric cancer. Maya Thompson, a close friend of mine and my sister, started The Ronan Thompson Foundation to raise awareness and fund treatment and support for those battling childhood cancer. Maya started it after her 3-year-old son, Ronan, passed away from Neuroblastoma on May 9, 2011 after bravely fighting it for nine months.  46 children a day are diagnosed with cancer. 7 of them will die today.  NO CHILD SHOULD.

You can read more about his story here:

Your donation to The Ronan Thompson Foundation funds the nation's top oncologists. The Foundation's fundraising assists these oncologists to perform ground-breaking clinical trials in the search for a cure for pediatric cancer. You can read more about where your money will go here:

In order to encourage donations, I will be shaving off my crazy year-long beard experiment on Monday, 12/21/15, for the cause and will let the person who donates the most decide how to design/ruin it on that day.

Thank you in advance for your thoughtfulness and generosity! Please share the fundraiser information with anyone you feel would support this cause. I truly believe that cancer has a cure, and with proper funding, we will find it!

Thank you so much,

Brian DiDio
