Shaving Heads for a Good Cause

This weekend is Saint Baldrick's and all across the Coastal Empire people are willing to get their heads shaved. It's all to help raise money for childhood cancer research.

Wednesday morning two doctors at Memorial Health got the shaving started early.  Doctors Chris Rittneyer and Phillip Millet sat by as they let amateurs, including WTOC's Christy Hutchings buzz their hair for this great cause.

Our crews caught up with the Shavee's before they lost all their hair and this is what they had to say about it. "It's not a real big deal, just hair," said Dr. Rittneyer, "the kids that have cancer go through so much more than this."

Dr. Millet has shaved his head for four years now and knows exactly what to expect. "You usually get stares. People look at me like what are you doing, then I tell them why I shaved my head, then they're supportive," said Millet. 

Saturday more people will be getting their heads shaved.  It's all  going to be taking place at Sluggers on Abercorn starting at 2 pm.
