My Town Wyoming: Dozens go bald to support children with cancer

WYOMING, Mich.--  Saturday, dozens of people who enter Chubby’s Bar & Grill with a full head of hair will leave bald.

More than 35 people have volunteered to shave their heads to support children with cancer and raise money for life-saving research through St. Baldrick’s Foundation.

Last year, St. Baldrick's Foundation donated $50,000 to Helen DeVos Children's Hospital.  Saturday, Dr. Giselle Sholler and Dr. James Fahner from the hospital will be on hand for the head-shaving event.  Another doctor, Dr. Peter Sholler will have his head shaved in solidarity.

“We are extremely thankful to St. Baldrick’s for their grant support of our Innovative Therapeutics Clinic in pediatric oncology at Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital, helping bring new therapies to children with cancer in Grand Rapids,” says Dr. Sholler.
