What:              T-Mobile operated by Wireless Vision in Fraklin Park, Ill., will host a St. Baldrick’s Foundation head-shaving event to raise funds and awareness for lifesaving childhood cancer research on Wednesday, June 13.

St. Baldrick’s shavee, Stephen Smith, will be shaving his head for a third time this year. Being one of Wireless Vision’s biggest advocates for St. Baldrick’s, his fundraising efforts have helped the Chicago-Wireless Vision Conquers Childhood Cancer event reach their fundraising goal and recruit more people to shave and participate.

Since the event first started in 2016, volunteers, participants and shavees have raised nearly $30,000. 

This June, in honor of National Cancer Survivors Month, support childhood cancer survivors by funding lifesaving research through events like the Wireless Vision Conquers Childhood Cancer. Together, we can give childhood cancer survivors long, healthy futures.
