Take a walk through the Rocky Vista University, located in Parker, campus and you will see bald heads walking around. Why the shaven students you ask? Michelle Valentine is a student at the college that is undergoing treatment for breast cancer.
Diagnosed last June, Valentine proudly bares her scalp everyday. The school decided to have a fundraising event that donated money to the research, and the assistance to breast cancer patients. Women came from all over the area to get their hair shaved off for the event. The sounds of nervousness and excitement all at once, as the supporters either got their hair buzzed off, or pink extensions.
Staying strong, Valentine knows what sort of treatment lies a head of her. The fundraiser really brought encouragement and a smile to her face. It is amazing the amount of medical students that participated in the fundraiser in Parker, that day. Floyd’s 99 Barbershop assisted with the whole event, taking care of the hair portion!
