Buzz 4 Brain Cancer is a fundraising campaign created by Josh Stovel in memory of his cousin Chris Hacio who lost a determined battle with brain cancer earlier this year. Josh has been growing his hair for over two years and has decided it’s time for a buzz! Josh has already met his goal of $5,000 that was donated to Princess Margaret Cancer Centre – Gerry and Nancy Pencer Brain Tumour Clinic.
Now, he has decided to team up with Beanies for Brain Cancer and Michael’s Hair Design to raise another $10,000 to donate to Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Foundation! Michael will be cutting Josh’s hair tonight at Sleeping Giant Brewery. Josh will be donating all 16 inches of his hair to A Child’s Voice Foundation, a non-profit organization providing wigs to children who have lost their hair from medical conditions or treatments.
