“It was such an honor to be part of the ‘Grow to Give’ event. It was a really special way to start the holiday season, by seeing the community come together for a great cause." - Dr. Alan. J. Bauman
Boca Raton, Florida (PRWEB) November 24, 2016
To help kick off the holiday season, the Boca Raton community came together earlier this month for the second biennial ‘Grow to Give’ event, which benefits men, women and children suffering from cancer-related hair loss. This year, 30 participants, which included both adults and children, celebrated the spirit of giving with a ‘cut that heals.’ Over 300 inches of hair were donated to Locks of Love and Pantene Beautiful Lengths, where they will be used to make wigs and cranial prosthetics for cancer patients.
The event, which took place on November 6th, was hosted by Congregation B’nai Israel. This life-changing program was created and designed by Rabbi Marci R. Bloch after encountering multiple congregation members and families affected by cancer. In addition to the hair donations, money was also raised for cancer research and other local charities.
Dr. Alan J. Bauman, a prominent hair restoration physician and founder of Bauman Medical in Boca Raton, was a VIP sponsor for this year’s event through his 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, the Bauman Philanthropic Foundation. “For many cancer patients, hair loss is a painful reality—a trigger of intense emotions and a daily reminder of the health situation that often seems out of their control,” he explained. “It was such an honor to be part of the ‘Grow to Give’ event. It was a really special way to start the holiday season, by seeing the community come together for a great cause. Because of their generosity, we will be able to give so many patients a much needed boost, by helping them restore their hair both during and after treatment.”
Dr. Bauman has a long history of award winning philanthropic involvement in the community, and often supports various charitable groups, organizations and events in the areas of education and healthcare in additional to local community initiatives.
Thanks to the support of local sponsors, each participant was treated to a special cut and style from one of the many hairstylists who volunteered their talents for the cause. “We wanted to really acknowledge what a special gift these donors were giving by treating them to a little pampering,” explained Dr. Bauman. “Because what they were doing was so much more than just a haircut.”

The event also was an opportunity to raise awareness on new cranial prosthetics, one of the most exciting breakthroughs in hair restoration, which are proving to be an especially valuable tool for treating chemo-induced hair loss. “These advanced hair replacement systems have the ability to dramatically improve the quality of life for men and women who are not candidates for transplantation and other medical treatments due to chemotherapy or other cancer treatments,” asserted Dr. Bauman.
A leading product in the cranial prosthetic category, the CRLab CNC Cranial Prosthesis is a unique medical-grade hair and scalp replacement system which uses 3D printing to perfectly design and conform the prosthetic or second skin to the patient’s exact cranial measurements, skin type and other specifications.
