Das Williams Goes Bald....to fight childhood cancer

Assemblyman Das Williams shaved his head on Monday at a St. Baldrick's Day event to show support and solidarity with children battling cancer.

“Everyone deserves a shot at life and happiness. That is why it is especially tragic when a child faces the prospect of a terminal illness. Instead of playing soccer, they make trips to chemotherapy; instead of school dances, they face baldness and surgery.”

“But we can help them beat it. Treatments for people who cannot afford them and research for life saving technology are expensive, so every bit helps. By shaving your head, you give them kinship. By donating, you give them hope.”
