Volunteers shave heads to support kids battling cancer
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Freshly shaved hair was everywhere Wednesday morning at the T-Mobile store on S. 27th Street.
Volunteers were getting their heads shaved to support kids with cancer. First, the volunteers raised money for cancer research and then shaved their heads as a show of solidarity with kids who lose their hair during cancer treatments.
Even the store manager got into the act Wednesday.
"Hey, I feel very proud, very honored to do it. I know that there's a lot of kids who might not feel recognized about it and just let them know that we do support them, we are with them. There is no shame in it. On the contrary, we stand tall and proud," said Carlos Esparza, T-Mobile Store Manager.
The goal of the head-shaving campaign is to raise $5,000.
