Joe Thomas shaves head to fight cancer

One of our own, WCHV's Joe Thomas, shaved his hair (his abundant hair!) Friday to fight cancer.  Joe was recently diagnosed with lymphoma has been undergoing chemotherapy.

He made the decision to shave his head but wanted to raise some money doing it. Donors bid to take his ponytail home, raising over $4,000 for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

Donations are still being accepted.  Make your check payable to the "Leukemia and Lymphoma Society." Send it to:
