Cancer remains the leading cause of death by disease for children under the age of 15. According to the American Childhood Cancer Organization, approximately 15,780 children between birth and age 19 are diagnosed with cancer each year. CHOG provides inpatient and outpatient care for pediatric oncology patients. Services offered include chemotherapy, central line placement and monitoring, intravenous infusions, blood transfusions and more.
In honor of National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, Children’s Hospital of Georgia shows its commitment to pediatric cancer patients by hosting our second “Brave the Shave” event.
We are asking doctors, nurses, community members and Augusta University students to shave their heads or donate locks of hair in support of children battling cancer
Cucumber and Mint will be donating time to shave heads of those participating
Media will be invited to cover the event
What You Can Do
Participate this year on August 29th by shaving your head and letting family and friends know that you stand with our pediatric oncology patients
