8th Annual Bald in the Boro: Colt's Story
The 8th annual Bald in the Boro is set to take place on Friday, March 16th, at Lanes, Trains and Automobiles in Murfreesboro, TN.
What is Bald in the Boro? This event is a community wide tradition that involves buzzing bald heads in exchange for donations to the St. Baldrick’s Foundation for childhood cancer research.
Brittany, team member of the Radiology department at Murfreesboro Medical Clinic, holds this cause close to her heart. Her son, Colt, was diagnosed in October of 2016, with a rare form of childhood cancer of the retina, called Retinoblastoma.
“We were told that Colt would need chemotherapy to shrink the tumors, and it needed to be started immediately due to the size,” Brittany shares.
The family bravely supported their small son through six rounds of chemotherapy and six tumors. It is difficult to imagine the freedom and joy experienced when the family received news that Colt did not need any more chemotherapy treatments!
Colt’s story of remission is one of many thanks to the technology and research that have been conducted. The St. Baldrick Foundation wants to continue to offer this beacon of hope to families who are presented with the unwanted and daunting diagnosis of childhood cancer.
Bald in the Boro is a family-fun event, encouraging the community to have fun for a cause that desperately matters. People of all ages are welcomed to ‘brave the shave,’ or simply donate and enjoy the joyous atmosphere of the evening.
