WYOMING, Mich. (WZZM) -- There are more than a dozen different types of childhood cancers. Most differ from adult cancers, and require special treatments.

Just 60 years ago, almost all kids diagnosed with cancer died from the disease. Today, 85% of kids with common types of cancer will live.

However, more research is needed to find a cure for other types of childhood cancer.

St. Baldrick's Foundation is holding an event in Wyoming where more than 30 volunteers collect pledges and shave their heads in solidarity with kids fighting cancer.

The event is at Chubby's Bar & Grill on Byron Center Avenue, Sunday March 30th from 12:00pm until 5:00pm.

They will also hold a silent auction and raffle. 100% of the money raised will be donated to the St. Baldrick's Foundation.
