Janice Smith, owner of Curves Comox, is helping to fight breast cancer.

On Oct. 25, Janice will shave her head as a fundraiser for the Canadian Cancer Society.

Donations have been made to support Janice’s efforts and a select few at the shaving event will have the opportunity to chop a chunk of Janice’s hair for a donation of $25 or more, while hair supplies last.

Janice has the support of many local friends who are donating funds to encourage her efforts. These supporters have also contributed to the fight against cancer in novel ways.

Bras have been decorated as a show of support. These are on display in Comox and voting, by donation to the Canadian Cancer Society, will determine the favourite bra of the group.

There are beaded, hand stitched, feathered, metallic and buttoned bras. Each is a work of art and a sign of shared support for women in our community.

The big hair-shaving event occurs Oct. 25 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Comox Town Square. Visitors are welcome to join in the fun.

Every donation made will make an impact in support of research efforts by the Canadian Cancer Society.
