Jack Bernstein was 4 years old when his family discovered that his 16-month-old sister Eva had neuroblastoma. The brave 10-year-old brother wants to do something to show support for his sister and raise money to help with children’s cancer.

This Saturday from 10AM to 4PM, Jack and his family will be holding a fundraiser at Trinity Hall Irish Pub in Mockingbird Station, located at Mockingbird and 75. Proceeds will go to St. Baldrick’s Foundation which helps infants, children, and teenagers battling cancer. He’ll be shaving his head celebrating his sister’s 5th year of being cancer-free!

You can find more information as well as donate at stbaldricks.org.
