The No Shave Natchitoches fundraiser for the American Cancer Society and the Relay For Life of Natchitoches Parish is in full swing. This year, 18 men have committed to letting their beards grow for the month of November.
The ACS is asking the public to go online and vote for their favorite candidate. Visit http://www.relayforlife.org/letitgrownatchitoches to donate on their behalf. Voting ends Dec. 6.
These men will serve as Ambassadors for the American Cancer Society throughout this campaign and help direct others seeking to find information on early detection, cancer screening, and living a healthy life.
This initiative was created to raise awareness for cancer. Many patients lose their hair during treatment for cancer so with this campaign, awareness is raised and conversations are started.
