Each weekday in the United States, 46 mothers are told that their child has cancer.The 46 Mommas represent all mothers who make the cancer journey with their child. Our annual teams are comprised of women from across the U.S., with different backgrounds, beliefs and lifestyles; there is one thing that they have in common --- childhood cancer.
In 2012 we added the "Honorary Momma" category, for the many friends and relatives, male or female, who would like to shave in honor of a child. Email email@example.com for more information and an application. If you’re not interested in shaving, you can still support us by donating to the team or a specific momma, or by registering as a volunteer.
We ARE 46 Mommas on a mission to raise awareness, raise funds for research and inspire others to help fund a cure for childhood cancer.
Each year a new class of 46 Mommas is inducted into the cause to empower and engage mothers of children with cancer. The number 46 is significant. On average, each weekday, 46 families receive the news that their child has cancer. Through increasing awareness of childhood cancer and raising funds for childhood cancer research by shaving our heads, we hope to one day be a group that no longer needs to exist.
