This hospital's staff shaved their heads in support of young cancer patients


ALBANY, N.Y. (CIRCA via WRGB) — For these folks, bald truly is beautiful.

Doctors, nurses and staff from Albany Medical Center shaved their heads at a St. Baldrick's fundraiser, raising money to battle childhood cancers.

The event started with a parade in Albany, in which patients rode in fire trucks to the Westmere Fire Department.

Inside, the hospital workers the children see every day shaved their heads in support of their young charges.

Jason DeWitt says his daughter, Olivia, was diagnosed with leukemia. He says events like this mean the world to them.

"To be honest, it's the one thing that helps you get through everything that you're going through," DeWitt said.
