Flashes Of Hope - Wigs For Kids

I am grateful and honored to serve as the St. Louis Chapter Director for Flashes of Hope. Founded in 2001 by the parents of a child with cancer, Flashes of Hope is a volunteer driven organization solely focused on children's cancer. With chapters in 55 cities, we photograph more than 50% of the children annually diagnosed in the United States.

In 2009, we began funding research and have already raised millions of dollars through our Kick-It program and other initiatives.

Inspired by the families I met at our photo shoots, I grew my hair for Wigs For Kids. It took 14 months to grow the 12 inches necessary, and I gladly chopped it all off last month.

Flashes of Hope is changing the way kids with cancer see themselves. You can change the life of a child with cancer. Donate now at
