#MayasLoveBank Hair Cut Challenge

#MayasLoveBank Hair Cut Challenge

From Amanda Burgess-Proctor

Our 11-year old daughter Maya uses a robot to attend school virtually while undergoing treatment for lymphoma at Beaumont Children's Hospital in Royal Oak, MI. We are raising money to buy more robots for BCH patients.

Update #4

Flashes of Hope (flashesofhope.org) is a national non-profit that raises money for pediatric cancer research and provides professional photographs of children with cancer. Recently our family did a photo shoot with them. In a happy coincidence, the photographers were at Beaumont the same day the #mayaslovebank robots arrived, so Maya got a photo with them before they were delivered to the pediatric patients who will be using them to attend school! Thank you to everyone who made the purchase of these robots possible. We are so grateful for the opportunity -- one of many unexpected blessings on this journey.

Update #3

This Saturday, February 9th, we celebrated Maya's 12th birthday and the conclusion of the #MayasLoveBank Hair Cut Challenge. We are thrilled to report that with the help of many generous relatives, friends, and strangers, we far surpassed our initial fundraising goal!

In addition to the $10,000 we gave Beaumont Children's Hospital in January for the purchase of two additional robots, we have raised well over $5000 in additional donations. We will be giving that money to the Skandalaris Family Center for Children with Cancer and Blood Disorders, the pediatric hematology-oncology clinic at Beaumont.

Thank you to Chris Trebilcock for the inspiration to do this fundraiser; to George Nikollaj, Derrick Rassam, and the entire 6 Salon team for hosting; to Adam Gilles and the Knights of Columbus #3292 for their generosity; to everyone who donated money, time, and inches of hair to support our efforts; and to our family and friends who have filled our family with unending love and light. We are honored by the opportunity to share your kindness with others.

With gratitude,
The Proctor Family

Update #1

Earlier today, Bryan, Maya, and I had the honor of presenting Beaumont Child Life Program representatives with a check for $10,000 to purchase not one but TWO additional robots! This gift was made possible by the generosity of each person who has supported our #MayasLoveBank Hair Cut Challenge. We are so grateful for the opportunity and grateful to all of you.

We still have more than $2000 in remaining donations (including those given to us independently of this Fundly page), and the Hair Cut Challenge remains in effect through Saturday, February 9th! As we have already doubled our goal of purchasing one robot, all additional funds will go to support programming and resources at the Skandalaris Family Center for Children with Cancer and Blood Disorders (where Maya receives her outpatient treatment) and the Beaumont Child Life Program.

We are blessed by the kindness of every person who has helped make this fundraiser an enormous success. Thank you!
