Video: Fighting cancer, donating hair 3:10
Patti Tucker, 69, of Fremont was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in March 2017. Now in the fourth week of chemo, her hair is falling out. She is cutting it to take charge of the cancer, instead of letting the cancer take charge of her, and donating the hair to make a free wig for a child, while she still has enough hair to donate.
Patti holds up locks of her hair cut by her friend Sandy Lagrou, manager of Friends Salon & Spa. Tucker will donate the hair to be used to make a child’s wig.
