Teen Shaving Head for Tumor Research
October 17, 2012 9:04 am - Potomac Local News
My name is Katy Patton and I am raising money for Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma Research at the University of Virginia’s School of Medicine.
Over the past six years, I have watched a close family friend of mine battle this disease, and she has been an inspiration to me.
On Sunday, Oct. 21, I will shave my head as a token of appreciation to everyone who has donated. I will hold an event at Aquia Church at 1 p.m. This event is open for anyone to attend.
Any size donation is appreciated, and as a special bonus, any donations of $100 or more will be awarded with a turn with the razor on my head!
A raffle will take place where for $5 you can be entered into a drawing to be take a turn on the razor first!
