Academy 'Ohana Supports St. Baldrick's Foundation

Sacred Hearts Academy invites you to show your support of Academy Alumnae, Dr. Desiree Medeiros Glaser, '82, Alana Glaser, '18, and current sophomore, Alyse Glaser, '21, in their family effort to raise awareness and funds for the St. Baldrick's Foundation

Both Desiree and her husband, Dr. Darryl Glaser are Pediatric Oncologists at the Kapiolani Children’s Blood and Cancer Center. Their children, Alana and Alyse, have grown up knowing children with cancer and the devastating effects cancer can have, and are excited to join their mom and dad in support of these brave warriors and show their support toward Conquering Childhood Cancers. This year, the entire Glaser 'ohana has volunteered to shave their heads to raise money for Childhood Cancer Research and to show solidarity with children with cancer.


“The St. Baldrick’s Foundation is a volunteer and donor powered charity committed to supporting the most promising research to find cures for childhood cancers and give survivors long and healthy lives.” Since 2005, St. Baldrick’s has funded over $258,000,000 in research grants for Childhood Cancer Research with Honolulu events contributing to over $680,000 for the St. Baldrick’s Foundation. 


Join them at the 9th Annual Honolulu St Baldrick’s Event on April 28, 2019 at Mai Tai Bar at Ala Moana Shopping Center at 12 noon to 4 pm.
