Do any of you know of a organization that raises money by shaving heads to support cancer patients? I am looking on the lines of this:
I'm in North Carolina and can't find anything local.
My mom was recently diagnosed with cancer, had surgery and just had her first round of chemo yesterday (She's getting Taxol and Carbo). For women, losing their hair is the hardest part of chemo and I'd like to do this to support my mom.

I just wanted to update everyone on what I decided. I signed up with St. Baldrick's and shaved my hair off this past Saturday. I was able to do a "virtual event". If anyone wants to see the pictures from my event, just pm me!
I didn't get the news or anything involved because I knew they would probably want my mom interviewed and I knew she wasn't comfortable with that. We ended up having a small "shave off" party at my parents house with my grandparents and a close family friend. My mom laughed more than she has in a long time.
Thanks for all the suggestions that you all gave.
BTW, I ended up raising over $810!
