me thinking about how fortunate I was," says Moe, a retired schoolteacher and guidance counselor. "My kids never were sick like that. And I'm blessed, I have healthy grandchildren, knock on wood, so far."Moe started reading about children's cancer and learned how poorly funded research on the disease has been.Childhood cancers are the No. 1 disease killer of children in the United States, and attempts to detect childhood cancers at an early stage, when the disease would react more favorably to treatment, largely have failed.That's where St. Baldrick's Day comes in. In 1999, three men in Manhattan first volunteered to shave their heads for donations to raise money for kids with cancer.By 2012, the St. Baldrick's Day Foundation had raised more than $1 million.In Sioux Falls, a St. Baldrick's Day fundraiser began eight years ago. It averages 100 shaved heads each year, and about 1,000 people attend the four hour event at the West 41st Street Pizza Ranch.Locally, Matt Jewett started St. Baldrick's Day in Sioux Falls, after participating with a brother in an event in Minneapolis. Last year, Rob Converse Wedding Shoes Bride Kiesecker served as lead volunteer organizer for the local committee.His involvement began about five years ago after his son, Ian, had been diagnosed with cancer.He survived that, and now Ian is recovering nicely from health issues that arose after the initial treatments."They told us five years ago it's not a matter of if he gets this but when," says Kiesecker, who provided his son with his own bone marrow for a transplant last fall.Many of the volunteers who participate in St. Baldrick's Day do it to support a young friend or family member with cancer, Kiesecker says. Others are like Moe, who just wants to draw attention to the issue.Many of the donors perhaps more than you would guess are women. Kiesecker's wife is having her head shaved for the first time Thursday.It's Moe's first time, too.Her personal goal is $1,500 in pledges. She herself donated twice, for her grandchildren, Abbie and Peter. It's not all about the money, however, but more about the awareness.Moe finds herself wondering what choices she would counsel if childhood cancer were discovered in her own family.She thinks often of how difficult it must be to explain to a 2 year old about what must be endured."We're all so aware of adult cancer and breast cancer," Moe says.

adds up, and faster than I'd expect.Perhaps I should adopt Pat Moe's attitude. "It's just hair," the Sioux Falls woman says. It's going to take time, however, before I can be so casual about it that I allow someone to shave it off, as Moe plans to do on Thursday.I would be apprehensive, but Moe will settle in to the chair displaying an attitude of gratitude.The attitude is the one she has embraced for months, ever since her daughter in law, Bobbi Quinlivan, told of two families she knew. Each had a young child seriously ill, one with leukemia, the other with brain cancer."It got Converse Limited Edition

"I don't think a lot of people think so much about children's cancer."We talk about it takes a village to raise a child, and children are our future. Forty six children are diagnosed with cancer every day, and many childhood cancers are incurable."
