Standing Together Through Cancer

Standing Together Through Cancer

Posted: Mar 30, 2018 6:15 PM

Redding, Calif -- Dozens of people shaved their heads Friday for the St. Baldwick’s Rock the Bald foundation event .
This comes after Shasta County Sheriff’s deputy Tim Wiley challenged Shasta County public safety officials to go green for a cause.
Wiley says after battling cancer with his daughter four years ago he wanted to give back the support he received during that time.
"It brought back huge rush of emotions, they are experiencing what I experience four years ago and for them I was able today to show that we stand behind them (Lockwoods)," said Wiley.
The Lockwoods are a local Shasta County family whose two children, Bryton and Bowen are battling cancer.
Bowen was diagnosed with Leukemia at 9 months old, and six months later his older sister Bryton was diagnosed with a rare cancer that weakens the muscles.

But now two years later, the children were running around enjoying the event in their honor.
"That he wanted to bring this up and bring the community and law enforcements and involve everybody its a big deal," said dad Isaac Lockwood.
The event began at 10 in the morning and by the end of the day almost 58 people had shaved their heads and more than $12,000 had been donated.
"There are a lot of kids out there and for them to see the support of the community especially our local community to see how great it is just a very important thing," said Lockwood.
