WilmerHale Partner Doug Davison Volunteers for Be Brave & Shave

WilmerHale Partner Doug Davison took part in the local Be Brave & Shave fundraising event on October 13 at the Children's National Medical Center in Bethesda. Davison was one of 45 participants who volunteered at the event to shave their head to make a difference for children in their fight against cancer. The annual fundraiser promotes awareness and support for the Blood and Marrow Transplantation (BMT) and Sickle Cell Disease programs at the Children's National Medical Center. Davison is one of the original founders of the event.

"Simply amazing," said Davison about the event. "In particular, many communities came together to support this cause—work colleagues, friends and family. This demonstrates the collective power we have to support the fight against cancer." 

A successful transplant patient, Jozlyn Miller, met her bone marrow donor for the first time during this year’s BMT Be Brave & Shave event. Their meeting and the event was captured by local television stations ABC-7 and NBC- 4.

Following last year's event, Be Brave & Shave volunteers raised close to $250K which went to rebuilding a BMT clinic. The new clinic offers the kids their own space, keeping them safer from infection.
