Bald Is Beautiful: Shaving Heads For Kids' Cancer
Minnesota man has personal connection. Watch him and his friends make the sacrifice.
When Trevor Nelson was a boy, his three-year-old niece was diagnosed with a cancerous tumor on her kidney. To this day, he's overwhelmed with emotion when discussing the family's ordeal.

His niece went on to make a full recovery and now works in the medical field.
Nelson recently joined a small team from Minnesota Atheists to raise awareness and money for kids' cancer research by getting his head shaved on stage in front of a Minneapolis crowd.

He was joined by Heather Hegi and her husband, Steve Adams, who began organizing the fundraiser two years ago.
Fighting childhood cancer is their passion.
This year they raised over $800 and Nelson raised another $300.
Minnesota Atheists has partnered with the St. Baldrick's Foundation, which hosts hundreds of head shaving events across the country each year.
Since 2005, the organization has raised over $280 million for childhood cancer research.
