My name is Danielle Frazier and I am from Marriottsville. I'm an alumni from Marriotts Ridge High School, class of '11. My grandmother, Rita Phillips of Woodstock, recently passed away from cancer. I am volunteering to shave my head for St. Baldrick's foundation. This foundation provides grants to further fund research on childhood cancers. St. Baldrick's provides a way to not only show solidarity with children undergoing chemo by letting them see that it's okay for adults to not have hair as well, but it provides a tremendous opportunity to raise funds for research.
This is my first year participating and I would like to raise $1,000. I recently transferred to the University of Wisconsin-Madison from Howard Community College. Our team at UW- Madison is aiming to raise $5,000. With the event coming up soon and less than $1,000 raised we would like to reach out to everyone in our home communities. Through volunteering to shave my head to raise money for this great cause I really hope others in the community feel inspired to participate, donate, or at the very least pass this information on to friends and family.
This is the link to my page where donations can be made:
I would also like to thank everyone so far who has given so generously to this amazing cause!
