Shave for support: Somonauk student goes bald to fight breast cancer
SOMONAUK – Grace Ballas walked into the Somonauk Middle School gymnasium in front of hundreds of schoolmates and teachers with a full head of hair.
She walked out bald.
On the final day of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the 13-year-old made sure people in her community were aware of the disease by having her 22-inch locks shaved off in front of her school Wednesday. It was the culmination of three weeks of fundraising that has generated more than $2,700 for the Susan G. Komen Foundation to go along with her personal sacrifice for Locks of Love.
