A dozen volunteers from St. Joseph High School partnered with the St Baldrick\u2019s Foundation Friday for the school\u2019s first Brave the Shave for Kids with Cancer fundraising event. The event, where the volunteers had their heads shaved to show solidarity with childhood cancer sufferers, raised about $2,500 for the foundation.\u201cIn my lifetime, the survival rate for childhood cancer has gone from 20% to 80%,\u201d said faculty member Carmen Pagliarella. \u201cThe St Baldricks Foundation wants to make that number reach 100%. So in support of these children, we\u2019re looking for volunteers from our St Joes community \u2013 men or women \u2013 to have their heads shaven in solidarity.\u201dThe St. Baldrick\u2019s Foundation is the largest private funder of childhood cancer research grants. According to the foundation, every two minutes a child is diagnosed with cancer worldwide, and in the United States, 1 in 5 of those children won\u2019t survive.
