We would like to send a special thank you shout-out to our Honorary Mommas!
Children battling cancer have more than loving Mommas. They have loving Dads, Grandparents, Aunts, Brothers, Cousins, and loads of wonderful friends! Many of these "non-Momma" supporters would like to shave their heads along with the 46 Mommas, also standing in solidarity with their honored children.
Please join us in thanking these special people who are shaving their heads to raise money and awareness for our cancer warrior children through our 46 Mommas Campaign with the St. Baldrick's Foundation.

I am the father of two children, Jenna and Wes. Jenna was diagnosed with Leukemia in 2011. I hope to help raise awareness about the lack of pediatric cancer funding.
Jenna was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (A.L.L) when she was 2.5 years old. She is currently in remission and in the maintenance phase of treatment until February 2014.
I am 13 and in 7th grade. I was 7 when my brother, Julian was diagnosed with Medulloblastom (brain cancer), and 8 when he died. I want to become a cardio thoracic surgeon.
My brother Julian was only 4 when he died. He dreamed to be 5 and go to kindergarten.
Friend of Sherry Halstead Morrison (Garit's mother), Family of Bevin Courville, cousin (Cullen's sister). No mother should have to say these words, "They told me that my son only had a couple months to live."
Sweet Cullen earned his wings at the age of 4 in 1987. His memory lives on through his amazing family.
Garit's wings came in 2011 at the age of 5. He will forever be in the hearts and minds of everyone he touched.
My sister Jordan was diagnosed with cancer five months before I was born. She is one of the lucky ones since she survived. I want to help all kids with cancer to survive it, too!
Jordan was diagnosed with Medulloblastoma in 2001, when she was only two years old. She is a survivor!
I started my journey advocating for kids with cancer through Facebook in 2008, when I learned of my 1st childhood cancer warrior Max Nunn. I also learned my uncle Dennis had been diagnosed with the same type of childhood cancer (brain tumor) as Max when he was 17 in 1974. He gained his wings at 24 in 1980.
Dennis Long was my uncle. I never got to know him, but I will never forget him. He was diagnosed with brain/spinal tumors in 1974 at 17 years of age. He gained his angel wings at 24 years old on April 1, 1980.
Hi, my name is Cameron and my brother, Matthew, had a brain tumor. He went to Heaven on Mother's Day 2009. I miss him a lot. My mom shaved in Washington, DC in 2011 and I want to shave my head in 2013.
Matthew was a typical brother whose little brother drove him bananas. But the love was always there and Cameron will always know how much Matthew loved him.
Matthew was a best friend.
Matthew is now our guardian angel.
I am an Honorary Momma, since my brother Cole was diagnosed with DIPG in 2005. I participated in many fundraisers since that time in an effort to improve the treatments for childhood cancer.
My brother Cole was eight when he was diagnosed with DIPG and died ten months later when he was 9. It broke my heart to see him the way he was, and I never want other kids to go through what I experienced.
I am mother of 3 children, Rob, Mandy, and McKinsey. I am retired/disabled from 30 plus years as a Hematology Supervisor and Generalist Medical Technologist. My one regret is that I did not begin my campaign for awareness and funding sooner.
Rachel was a beautiful blond haired, blue eyed child who lost her battle. I am honoring Rachel with love and respect for her fight.
Gary-Wayne is currently in maintenance and I am honoring him for his bravery against this monster.
I have a son that was born with a heart condition. He has since been diagnosed autistic as well. I know what it is like to stand over your child's hospital bed and wonder if they are coming home. I don't think any one should have to go through that and I am doing what I can to make that a reality. I am serious about wanting to do this.
My name is Eternity Murray. I am 20 years old and live in Salina, Kansas with my mom and two brothers. I am currently in college to become a veterinary technician in hopes to go on and get a full veterinary degree and open my own practice handling all animal including farm animals and exotic pets.
Derek is my little brother and pain in my neck of almost 14 years now. He has days where he seems to be a picture of health an others where he can spend weeks in the hospital. Through every procedure, surgery, and appointment I have been there for him. I take pride in knowing that I have such a strong, incredible, just down right loving person like Derek as my brother. No matter how much of a little brother he can be his sissy will always be there!
I've been married for 43 years to my husband David and I'm a mom to three grown, married children and grandmother to 5 boys and 1 girl. I work in a community college as the Director of Student Activities and looking forward to retirement in the fall. I enjoy boating, country line dancing, motorcycle riding, and most of all being with my family.
Sweet, smiley Shayla went over the rainbow this past November after a 4 year battle with Neuroblastoma. She is missed by all who love her.
Shayla is a St. Baldrick’s Hero and will always be a hero for children with cancer. She took turns with her sister buzzing off her mother's hair with the 2011 group of 46 Mommas . She has also shaved off the hair of her Gramps, uncles, aunt, and dear friends, knowing they all were in solidarity with her and her cancer battle. Hair grows back...
Shayla has participated in clinical trials at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, where oncology research was studied and learned thanks to her contribution. Most importantly, Shayla was a beacon of light and hope to anyone she made smile!
My mommy is shaving my head in honor of my brother Mason and to help make me even more handsome. I never got to meet my brother Mason because he died from brain cancer before I was born. He would have loved to be my big brother.
I have some baby hair I need to get rid of so why not do it for a great cause?
Mason was a fighter, a superhero, an artist, a soccer player, a baseball player and a cancer survivor. Cancer did not define Mason. Mason defined his cancer.
My name is Nicole Davis. I am married to Curtis Davis and we have a beautiful little girl named Amelia. I have been blessed that my biological family has not been touched by cancer. I say "biological" because I consider Laura Hernandez and her daughter Siena my family even if we don't share the same ancestry. Laura and I have been friends since we met in the 3rd grade. When Siena was diagnosed in 2011 I felt helpless being so far away; they live in Colorado and we live in Texas. When I found out about this movement and event I knew I wanted to support my dear friend and honor her brave little girl.
Siena Catherine Hernandez is the daughter of my oldest friend, Laura. Siena was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia on April 6, 2011. She shows us her strength each day; her smile and giggles are contagious! Even when she isn't feeling well, she still manages to smile. Siena will end treatment on June 9, 2013.

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.
