Many gather for University Hospitals St. Baldrick's Head Shaving Event


It was festive and green.

Many gathered in the University Hospital's Rainbow Babies and Children's Performance Area for a good cause.

With St. Patrick's Day quickly approaching, people could be seen in green shirts with leprechaun hats and shamrock necklaces. But the main reason for being there was much bigger than that. They were there to support pediatric cancer research through St. Baldrick's Foundation. The St. Baldrick's Foundation works hand in hand with UH Rainbow Babies and Children's Hospital to help conquer childhood cancer.

Nearly 75 University Hospital Doctors, nurses, administrators, family members and more showed their support by shaving their head and going bald for a good cause. Many were shaving their heads in honor of one of their patients currently receiving treatment at UH Rainbow Babies. One of the many inspiring moments was when a group of University Hospital nurses gathered and cheered each other on while they shaved their long blonde hair for the real heroes, the kids, they help through treatment every day while they fight a tough battle.
