"I can be the voice for my son."
For Eric Haddad, head shaving isn’t just a one-time deal, because as the dad of a kid who fought brain cancer, he knows firsthand that the effects can last a lifetime. Next month, at the Rocky River event in Ohio, Eric will be shaving his head for the eighth time, while raising funds for research that he hopes will lead to better, safer treatments for kids with cancer.
Making a Difference by Helping Families
In 2010, Shane Haddad was diagnosed with brain cancer at the age of 3. Shane's parents, Eric and Amy Haddad, have helped fight this battle with Shane since he was diagnosed. Eric and Amy understand the challenges that families face when people have a child living with cancer. Out of love for their child and seeing firsthand how difficult it is to try to live as normal a life day to day as possible with the challenges this disease brings, the Haddad family set out to find ways to support others dealing with these same adversities. Thus Shanerock was established as a 501(c)(3) that focuses on supporting local families who are battling pediatric cancer. Shanerock also supports and partners with other non-profits and joins with them in the fight against pediatric cancer.
