Please join us in supporting Balding for Dollars.

Balding for Dollars raises community awareness for childhood cancer and blood disorders, provides funding to support the oncology program at BC Children's Hospital (BCCH), and supports kids and their families throughout their journey.

Since Beckett's diagnosis in February 2020, we have witnessed first hand the immense importance of what BCCH and their supporters provide families who experience childhood cancer diagnoses.  BCCH works closely with other hospitals across North America to ensure they are providing the top level of care and improving treatments where possible.  We feel privileged to be participating in a study focusing on the specific type of cancer Beckett has been diagnosed with.  This study aims to significantly reduce the chance of relapse experienced with the current standard treatment.  We are hopeful that Beckett is part of a process that will help to improve the outcome in future treatment for others.  

We also couldn't be more grateful to have a hospital of BCCH's caliber so close to home.  BCCH allowed us access to expert care for Beckett within hours of receiving his diagnosis.  Many families are not as fortunate and need to drop everything and travel hours from where they live to come and receive care at BCCH, away from all of their family, friends and support network.  Balding for Dollars not only helps provide all families at BCCH, from near and far, with the basic essentials they need while living at the hospital receiving care but they also do everything in their power to make it as positive of an experience as it could be. 

Covid 19 has not only made life a little scarier and more difficult for the families navigating cancer treatments, but it has also made it more difficult for charities such as Balding for Dollars to raise funds to help support these families.  When we heard this news we instantly knew we wanted to do something to help.  We feel we could never do enough to sufficiently thank BCCH for what they have done for us, but we are excited to be able to give back what we can. 

Donations to Balding for Dollars will go directly to helping support families and towards research programs, like the one in which Beckett is participating, to help advance the treatment of childhood cancers. .

You can help by making a secure online donation to our fundraising page.

Thank you for your support.

Sincerely,
Geoff and Mel
