Shear determination as five shave heads for cancer research BY ASHLEY FOLEY Staff Reporter
Five locals shaved their heads this weekend to support of those close to them battling cancer and to raise funds for research. In total, five people shaved their heads and $2,096 was raised. A silent pie auction was also held at the Arden Standard Church on Sunday with 26 pies. Roxanne Brownlee began the initiative after
her good friend Sandra Noreen Baese lost her battle to cancer. “She just passed away on Jan. 23,” she said, but not before she told her friend of her plans to fundraise for cancer and shave her head. “She said to me, ‘Figures, you’re such a goof,’ and she did warn me not go down to skin in case I had bumps in my head and told us all to wear hats with lining in them. She had wanted to cut my hair, she was going to do it, but unfortu-
nately she wasn’t able to.” The other supporters who shaved their heads and raised funds were Brownlee’s uncle Boyd Tryan and his wife Connie, a friend David Swann and Kyle Flieler, who has a nine-year-old stepson with leukemia. “None of us have done this before,” said Brownlee, stating they all have their own reasons for supporting the event, such as Brownlee’s connection to Baese and Flieler’s connection to Josh.
