According to  one in 3 people will be diagnosed with cancer in some point in their lives and according to the American Hospital Association within five years, cancer will surpass heart disease as the leading cause of death. I’m sure you didn’t need these facts to agree that cancer is a disease that hits close to home and everyone probably knows someone that has had cancer effect their lives.
At our school some boys got together and decided they were tired of just sitting back, they wanted to do something about it. So they decided they were going to raise money and shave their heads for cancer. So for the past few months they have been getting together as much sponsorship and other volunteers that were willing to shave their heads as possible.
Today was their big day. People from the cancer foundation came down to our school and ended up shaving many children’s heads. At first there were mostly boys signed up and only 2 girls. But as the day went on more girl started getting involved and many girls with long beautiful hair shaved it all off and donated it to cancer.
A few years ago I cut my hair to donate it to make wigs for cancer patients. The thought this small gesture of mine could put a smile on a disserving face make it all worth it to me. I am so proud of all the people that shaved their head for cancer today!
