I started growing my hair in 6th grade for the trend of lacrosse (the lax flow), but in 7th grade I watched the documentary on “The Man in the Red Bandanna”. Afterward, I knew I wanted to make a difference somehow.
Welles Crowther made the ultimate sacrifice for others. His story has been an inspiration to me. It is the reason I wear #19 and a red bandanna every time I pick up my lacrosse stick. It is the story of Welles Crowther that has inspired me to want to make a difference of my own somehow in the lives others.
I have chosen to join the fight against cancer. Cancer is such a devastating illness that has affected the lives of so many people. On May 6th, 2019, senior night of my final season of Toms River HS South Lacrosse, I will be cutting my hair. I will be donating my hair to CWHL (children with hair loss). Unlike some other organizations, the wigs made at this organization are donated at absolutely no cost to patients.
In addition to my hair donation, I have decided to try and raise as much money as possible to be donated to the American Cancer Society. According to my research, the work of the American Cancer Society has contributed to more than 2.1 million fewer cancer deaths since 1991. Hopefully someday, we can beat this horrible disease completely.
While my hair donation and fund raising efforts cannot be compared to the sacrifice Welles Crowther made on 9/11, I hope I can make a difference in some of the lives that have been affected by cancer.
All funds raised in my endeavor will be donated in the name of Welles Crowther.
Please help me make a difference!!! Thank you for your support!!!
All donations are greatly appreciated!!!
