Why do I Shave?
As a father of three healthy girls I feel blessed. So I'm shaving my head for my hero Hudson Lillystone.
Hudson was 3-years old when she was diagnosed with leukemia. She was started on treatment the same day she was diagnosed. Part of the treatment was chemotherapy and high doses of steroids. When Hudson began to lose her hair, she asked her parents if she could shave her head. "We got out the clippers and she smiled through the whole thing," her mother, Emily, said. Hudson likes to confidently declare that she is "Hudson Strong" and never wanted to cover up the fact that she has a bald head. Hudson is in remission now and proudly wears her hair with vivid colors. It's an extension of her colorful and vibrant personality.
I am shaving my head for Hudson and all the children who have to fight the battle that no human, let alone child should ever have to fight!
