$30,000 for a 30th birthday

JANUARY 4, 2020

Lena’s aunt, Sophia, wanted to ring in her new decade in a meaningful way. As her niece’s diagnosis was close to her heart, she wanted to highlight the exceptional care that Lena had been receiving at the Children’s and find a way to give back. She set up an online fundraiser with an initial goal of $10,000, where she pledged to cut 10 inches of her hair upon reaching it. Within days, the donations received exceeded her initial goal, which is when she decided to up her target to $30,000. She attained her objective and entered her 30s with a new look.

Thank you for #shininglikeLenz, Sophia!
