A ridiculous look for an extraordinary cause

Jason LeMaitre has an odd look. But it’s for the best possible reason. He’s promised to keep half his head shaved an extra day for every $50 raised to help his friend Charmaine Norton pay her medical bills.
Norton, a Jason Lee Middle School teacher and mother of four, has breast cancer. In August, when she had a head shaving party, LeMaitre showed up with his new look.


“Bald men are a dime-a-dozen,” he writes in his Tumblr blog MachismoChemo. “I wanted to support my friend in a way that helps me understand, even just a little bit, what she’d going through or at least let her know that someone in our neighborhood is getting ever stranger looks than she” .

If you would like to help Norton and extend LeMaitre’s extraordinary act of goodwill, you can visit the Norton gofundme site, make a donation, and write the words “chemo challenge”.
