CINCINNATI - Seton High School's gym was turned into a giant hair salon Monday as 335 students, alums and community members gave up their ponytails for cancer patients.
The event was dedicated in memory of Seton alum Jen Sherman ('09), who died in 2012. Sherman had donated her hair in 2007 in honor of her mother, who died of cancer.
At 9 a.m., mothers, grandmothers and friends picked up scissors and started cutting 8-inch locks. Students donated their ponytails in honor of someone whose life has been affected by cancer.
A Seton student and several alums spoke to the crowd about their fight with cancer.
