Hair donated for cancer research at QU

There was a whole lotta shavin' and cuttin' goin' on Monday night at Quincy University.

The college held a St. Baldrick's head shaving and Pantene Beautiful Lengths ponytail donation for cancer patients.

Dr. Deirdre Fagan is an associate professor of English.

She came up with the idea for this event.

Fagan said, "It's so important, because we're raising really important funds that are going to help fund the research that is going to find the cure for these kids."

Beautiful Lengths is a partnership between Pantene and the American Cancer Society, which donates thousands of free, real-hair wigs to women living with cancer.
