This year will mark the tenth year that mother and daughter duo, Kathy and Erica Edbauer, have participated in Goin’ Bald for Bucks. Kathy and Erica are both Roswell Park employees, and their passion and commitment for the cause is contagious. Here’s what they had to say about Goin’ Bald:
“We started this tradition in 2009 because we wanted to show our support for our family and friends dealing with this horrific disease. Shaving your head knowing that your hair will grow back is such a minor price to pay to show support for those that are suffering. We feel blessed to be able to be a very small part of this event. One person alone cannot change the path of this disease, but we hope that by doing this year after year, we have helped at least one person feel like they are not alone on this journey. Seeing everyone come together to show support and raise awareness is the best part of event day.”
We hope that you will consider joining participants like Kathy and Erica on Wednesday, February 21 when Team Roswell goes Bald!
