Dozens of Students Shaved Their Heads to Support a Principal Battling Cancer


Last month, a principal in South Burlington, Vermont named Patrick Burke was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.  Luckily it's treatable . . . and he's getting A LOT of support.
 
Patrick has been the principal at South Burlington High School for 12 years, and he's EXTREMELY popular with students.  When they heard he was going through chemo, the entire student body wanted to do something to support him.
 
First they made a video lip synching to the PHARRELL song "Happy", where they danced through the school and everyone held up "get well" signs.
 
Then they dubbed this past Tuesday "Bald for Burke Day" . . . and about 30 students and faculty had their HEADS SHAVED in the school's auditorium.  Which raised $2,500 for the American Cancer Society.
 
That morning, Patrick was getting his second round of chemo, and sent out several tweets thanking them for planning it.  Then he showed up to have HIS head shaved, and to promise his students he's going to BEAT the disease.
