Regardless of the election results, here's something all political parties can stand behind: we must support childhood cancer research. And that's exactly what Democratic National Committee spokesperson Brad Woodhouse and Republican National Committee spokesperson Sean Spicer agreed to do by shaving their heads to raise money for the St. Baldrick's Foundation. Originally, they made a bet on the presidential election, with the winner getting to shave the loser's head, but in the end, Brad Woodhouse decided to shave too, and they both went under the clippers this morning on "This Week with George Stephanopolous."

Raising awareness! So awesome and so desperately needed. Currently, less than 4% of the National Cancer Institute's annual budget is directed to research on the 12 major types of childhood cancer combined, so a bipartisan statement like this might encourage the powers-that-be on both sides of the aisle to push for increased funding to the NCI and specifically to pediatric cancers! A girl can dream ...

If you'd like to make a stand for childhood cancer research, join the fun this Friday at Comedy GOLD! And even if  you can't make the show, you can still make a donation here, in support of the 46 Mommas and St. Baldrick's. It's going to be a great night for a great cause, so come on out and let's CONQUER!
