Support Nate Pautsch in fundraising for St. Baldrick's (and make Chris shave his head)

Nate before shaving his head for St. Baldrick's.

My nephew Nate is shaving his head again this year for the St. Baldrick's event at the Downers Grove High School on Friday, March 11. He's been growing his hair out since August and now is raising money from family and friends to donate to cancer research.

When Nate's friend Mikayla was just 5 years old, she was diagnosed with a Wilms tumor, a form kidney cancer.

This is the second time Nate is participating in this charitable event.

Make Chris shave his head, too!

Nate is just over halfway to his goal of raising $3,000; if you need some extra encouragement, Chris Pautsch, my brother and co-founder of KeyLimeTie, has agreed to shave his head if his son Nate reaches $3,000. Click the
