A 'Minuscule' Sacrafice to Help Fight Cancer



St. Baldrick’s Day has made an impact worldwide, raising more than $154 million and reaching 88 countries in the fight against pediatric cancers. At Rush St. Baldrick’s Day is more than a fundraiser. It provides the opportunity for doctors and nurses to show patients that they are present in their treatment and healing on the inside and out. 
Tanya Friese, DNP, RN, CNL, participated in the annual shaving of heads this past St. Baldrick’s Day. In her Rush InPerson blog post she explains how shaving her head is “minuscule and priceless” if the funds raised contribute to the eventual defeat of pediatric cancer.Friese is an instructor in the Rush University College of Nursing's Department of Community, Systems and Mental Health Nursing. She is also the educational coordinator for the Road Home Program: The Center for Veternas and Thier Families.
