Local business owner is losing his locks for love

Josh Greenwood, co-owner of Games and Grounds Coffee House, has been growing his hair for the last few years and dons a ‘man bun’ daily. He loves his locks but is willing to lose them to fund-raise for his friend of many years, Ray Sadler.

Sadler’s daughter is going through cancer treatment in Seattle for a recurrence of leukemia. This treatment is not available in Canada, and is the only one available that will help her beat this disease.

Naturally, Sadler is by her side throughout this process, which could take up to nine weeks to complete.

Throughout this journey, Sadler has worked periodically, but has missed a lot of work to be with Kaydence. Financial responsibilities don’t go away when you have a medical issue to deal with, so Games and Grounds Coffee House would like to make sure that he doesn’t have to worry about money at this time. Those who know Sadler, know he is a kind and giving individual, and is always there for people.

There is a Go Fund Me campaign for Sadler, so this fund-raiser is for those people who aren’t able to donate online.

Ray is aware of both fund-raisers, and although he isn’t comfortable with asking for help, he realizes that in order to support his daughter, he must accept the generosity of others.

Along with the Go Fund Me campaign, there is also a donation jar in Games and Grounds Coffee House for cash donations. When the goal of $2,500 is reached, out come the scissors, and Greenwood’s hair will be cut short!

Greenwood hopes to donate his hair to create a wig.
