"We have a cub scout who is nine-years-old who has been suffering from abdominal cancer. Recently he went though chemo and radiation and lost his hair," said Troop 4111 Scout Master, Jason Schafer.
Schafer decided to shave his head and said he was proud to see some of his scouts do the same.
One of them is Brennan Whitehead who said, "There's this boy in our troop, he's fighting cancer and I felt really bad for him."
He said he wanted to support his friend Ethan.
"It wasn't this cold when I used to have a full head of hair," Brennan said.
Area boy scouts and cub scouts also found another way to help. The bald boys bundled up in what felt like 30 degree weather to sell popcorn for their troop, and ask for donations for Ethan, the cub scout with cancer.
"It's great to see kids develop in character. That's what we do in Boy Scouts," Schafer said.
A shaved head and a rewarding experience for eight-year-old Brennan.
"I went around telling everybody I shaved my head and he was smiling like he was happy happy," he said. When asked what Ethan said to him after his new hair cut, Brennan said, "he said, thank you."
Schafer said this experience exemplifies two things that Boy Scouts stands for, community service and character.
