Clips for Cancer to raise awareness for pediatric cancer

SOUTHWEST FLORIDA — Golisano Children’s Hospital in Southwest Florida is hosting its virtual kick-off event Clips for Cancer on Friday, September 3 at 8 a.m. to raise awareness and support for local children fighting cancer.

Throughout September, childhood cancer survivors will be shaving the heads of local community leaders.

The hospital says one of the survivors, 10-year-old McKynsie Jones, will shave the head of Michael Nachef, VP of Government Relations for Lee Health.

“I’m losing my hair, but that’s nothing compared to what these real heroes do,” he said. “This event is something that celebrates their life-saving work and celebrates our children who fought and won the battle against cancer.

You can follow the event live every Friday in September at 8am on the Golisano’s Children’s Hospital Facebook page.

If you would like to make a donation to support McKynzie and Michael, you can do so on the hospital’s website.
