Donations to Bald by Design go to the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, a nonprofit organization that raises money to help fund grants, research, facilities expansion and cutting-edge treatments for childhood cancer. Participants have their heads shaved in solidarity with children who have lost their hair due to chemotherapy and radiation. Claire went into remission after treatment and has remained healthy ever since.
