From blond to bald for a suffering family

Girl from Sidney shaves her long blond hair in hopes of raising money from suffering family

In just minutes, Faith Combs, 14, went from sporting silky blond locks that reached to her lower back, to a rather bare scalp.

The Grade 9 Stelly’s secondary student and Sidney resident shaved her head Sunday to raise money for a family touched by cancer. Combs hopes to raise $5,000.

Nicole Thomson, 41, is in palliative care, suffering from a rare form of pancreatic cancer.

She’ll leave behind two daughters, age 11 and 14, and her husband.

A trust fund for the Thomson family, via Combs’ efforts, is set up at the Island Savings Credit Union in Mayfair Mall, under the account 2189546.
