A shave to fight cancer

Posted: Updated:

Monday is St.Patrick's Day. The Friday before has now become another type of holiday - one where everyone shaves their heads for a good cause.

A Gwinnett County family will participate in one of St. Baldrick's signature head-shaving events in Sandy Springs. The St. Baldrick's Foundation raises money for childhood cancer research.

Sugar Hill mother Tammy McGrath talked about her new haircut.

Her son, Christian, was diagnosed with cancer when he was 6. The St. Baldrick's organization says the act of shaving your head is symbolic.

Tammy, Christian and Dad – Christopher – all shaved their heads in years past. But this year is special, because 10-year-old Kaitlyn has decided to join in.

Christian said he's proud of his little sister.
