Teachers shave heads to support fellow teacher with cancer

UNION TWP., Pa. - A dozen teachers at a Berks County high school are showing support for one of their own battling cancer.

The teachers at Daniel Boone High School in Birdsboro shaved their heads Monday to support their fellow teacher Barb Young, who was recently diagnosed with breast cancer.

"I chose to cut my mine because it was going to come off. Their's wasn't. So, they're just doing it to support me, and make me feel more comfortable, and it's just wonderful.," said Young.

The teachers agreed to shave their heads if students raised $5,000 for Relay for Life.

But the students did even better -- and brought in more than $7,000.
