COPY-Shaving heads for a good cause

The Freeland family quickly learned about the high cost of healthcare after their son, Benjamin, was diagnosed with brain cancer.

"It gets to the point where you don't even look at the bills because you know they're so high," said Kate Freeland.

So Patrick's employer, Cape Fear Community College, organized a family fun day to raise some money and lift the spirits of the Freeland family.

"It's not something you plan for and to have the community reach out to us like this is absolutely amazing," said, Benjamin's father, Patrick Freeland.

There's one group in town that's rallying against cancer – fighting for kids like Benjamin. With a name like St. Baldrick's Foundation, you probably already know this organization's weapon of choice in the fight against cancer."

A simple once over with the clippers has participants sporting a new do. It's a sign of solidarity for kids who have lost their hair to chemotherapy.

There's plenty to smile about as participants walk away looking like curly from the Three Stooges, but the effort supports a very serious cause.
