Aldergrove Secondary school student Travis Sharman is going to have his afro hair style cut for charity.
Wigs for Kids BC (W4K BC) helps kids living with cancer, live better.
A proudly volunteer-run organization, W4K BC provides funding to cover the cost of custom-made human-hair wigs for children and teens at BC Children's Hospital who have suffered hair loss due to cancer treatment or other serious illnesses.
Donations to W4K BC also help families pay for medications and feeding supplies that are essential for treatment but not covered by their medical plan.
When a child has a serious illness it takes an enormous toll on the entire family–both emotionally and financially. The assistance W4K BC provides makes the family's burden a little lighter so they can focus more of their time and energy on caring for their sick child.
By contributing to W4K BC, you are making a tremendous difference in the lives of children living with cancer - and their families - across the province.
Travis Sharman is willing to shave his patented afro if we all can raise enough money. Any donation is highly appreciated big or small.
This is for a great cause to try and make kids lives any better than what they are. Thank you for your support.
The head shaving date is Wednesday, May 6 from 11:30 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. at Aldergrove Community Secondary School.
