Candelite Chicago hosted the 2016 annual event for The St. Baldrick’s Foundation / Donna's Good Things, on March 19th, 2016. We were honored to have the opportunity to document this amazing event !
Our friends Sarah and Scott Zematis have learned firsthand how much is unknown when families are faced with childhood cancer. “It is beyond frustrating how many times we have heard, "we don't know" when difficult situations have arisen in Sophia's journey. Research is the answer to so many of our questions and that cannot happen without funding. St. Baldrick's is the number one private funder of pediatric cancer research and they need our help.” SZ
We invite you into this gallery to see these remarkable kids, families, friends and volunteers who donated, shaved, cheered and supported each other this past Saturday afternoon !
