A Grand Finale

Thanks to everyone who made this year's campaign for the St. Baldrick's Foundation a great success. With your support, over $4,526 was raised; soaring past my goal of $3,000. If you haven't donated yet, there is still time to join the party--and conquer kids' cancer. To celebrate I have produced another short video (3 min). All I can say is, "watch from the beginning until the
end, even if 'you know how it ends.'"

St B's official form letter

Guess what, I’m shaving my head! What on earth for? I’m going under the clippers at a St. Baldrick's event to raise money for childhood cancer research.

If you can, please come to AJ Rocco's on March 17 at 5:00 to watch and cheer me on. Whether or not you can be there, I hope you’ll support me – both in spirit and with a donation. All my donors’ names (unless anonymous) will appear on my page of the St. Baldrick’s website!

More than 160,000 kids are diagnosed with cancer each year. Despite tremendous progress, cancer remains the #1 disease killer of children in North America. I’m out to help change that! Since St. Baldrick’s began in 2000, shavees like me have raised more than $50 million, and this has grown into the world’s largest fundraising event for childhood cancer.

The St. Baldrick’s Foundation made $15 million in grants last year, to some of the top pediatric cancer researchers working today, and also to 30 young doctors who will be the research experts of tomorrow.

Children fighting cancer lose not only their hair but years of their childhood, and sometimes their lives. Compared to their struggle, shaving my head is a small sacrifice, and the money raised will make such a difference for them.

So, please help me raise as much as I can – both to justify this crazy decision, and to fund as much research as possible! No amount is too big or too small – every gift matters so much. Please help me reach my goal of $3,000 by March 17.

To give online, go to, click on “Donate” and search for my name as the participant to support. Or you can donate by phone at (888) 899-BALD, or write a check to “St. Baldrick’s Foundation.”

If you want to volunteer or get more involved, please let me know. We’re going to have some serious fun, Shaving the Way to Conquer Kids’ Cancer!

Trailer : FRO III

Posted a trailer for FRO III on youtube. Don't forget to donate.

Buttons 2009

Donors I see in person will get a Fro III or Fro Magnon button. Facebook friends will be sent "Flair." This year's buttons appear in the photo below. Special thanks to B's Music.

I also have FRO III promo cards (say it like Rocky IV, "Fro Three"). Promotional cards are available to anybody who asks. Hold them up to the light, looking at the bald side and you can see a "before and after."
