Debbie Fochler (l) from Absolute Hair in Clearwater cuts John Meyer’s hair. Meyer had been growing his hair for two years and it was 11 inches long. On Oct. 1, it was cut for Canadian Cancer Society’s hair donation program. The hair will be used to help make real hair wigs for women who have lost their hair as a result of cancer treatment. This can help women living with cancer regain their confidence and sense of self. There is no cost to the society or to the individuals who receive these wigs. Hair donations must be a minimum of eight inches long. If you are thinking of donating your hair, go to the Canadian Cancer Society website to learn more. Meyer has had his head shaved several times to support the fight against cancer, most recently 2014 when he had it done to raise money for the Cops for Cancer Tour de North.
