St. Baldrick’s shavee survives cancer, goes bald for others

St. Baldrick's 2013

Katie and Matt Riccio.

When Matt Riccio was asked by the Missouri Valley Family YMCA’s Brave the Shave team, Y not, to join in, he couldn’t say no.

When he was 25 years old, Riccio was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, and three years later is a survivor.

Watch video of Riccio and his wife Katie describe his battle with cancer, and why it’s important to support childhood cancer research now.
