Fort Mill teacher making a difference and raising awareness of pediatric cancer
Updated: Sep 25, 2020
September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and Lauren Still, a math and social studies teacher at Pleasant Knoll Middle School, took action in honor of a friend’s 18-month-old who was recently diagnosed with a tumor.
In partnership with St. Baldrick’s Foundation she raised over $4,000 for childhood cancer research and donated 22 inches of her hair to Hair We Share, an organization that donates wigs to children with hair loss due to cancer treatment and alopecia.
This isn’t the first time Still has taken action. In 2014, she donated 16 inches of hair and raised over $5,000. Once Hair We Share matches her hair with other hair donations, they will make a wig and share the finished product with her!
Talk about making a difference and being an inspiration to her students!
