Frankie Reichert is getting ready to chop off her hair for a good cause. 'Shave for the Brave' helps young adults dealing with effects of cancer find a voice

Frankie wants you—to shave

D-Day for Frankie Reichert is January 6. Her head will be lighter and perhaps cooler.

D-Day for Frankie Reichert is January 6.  Her head will be lighter and perhaps cooler.  Reichert is participating in an act of personal generosity through Shave for the Brave, a fundraiser to help young adults with cancer deal with the aftermath in a positive meaningful way.

“I’ve had a couple of family members get cancer,” said Reichert.  “I wanted to help in my own way, so when I found the Shave for the Brave website on the internet and talked to a coordinator, I decided this was the way to go.  I was looking for where to donate my hair to that would help cancer patients.  The coordinators were really helpful and sent me a fundraising kit to help out with my fundraising efforts.  It has just kind of grown from there.”

Reichert is still looking for new recruits to “Shave for the Brave.”  The more recruits the more money that will be raised for a good cause.  Shave for the Brave is part of Young Adults with Cancer and each dollar raised goes to help inform and support those young adults with their fight.  Frankie is always looking for more pledges and “victims” to cut it all off.  Denise Duquay has become both, offering a pledge and her head.  If you are interested in helping this worthy cause, call Frankie at 250-295-7329.
