NEW ORLEANS – Some Tulane University medical students and staff went under the clipping shears Wednesday for a good cause – to raise money for and show solidarity with pediatric cancer patients.

The event is organized by first and second-year medical students and is attended by young oncology patients.

Money raised is donated to St. Baldrick’s, which gives grants to provide institutions with resources to conduct more research on kids and cancer.

“In the past four years, Tulane students and staff have raised more than $253,000 for St. Baldrick’s with a total of 573 heads shaved,” said student organizer Maja Katusic.
