TACOMA, WASH. - Jason LeMaitre has an odd look. But it’s for the best possible reason. He’s promised to keep half his head shaved an extra day for every $50 raised to help his friend Charmaine Norton pay her medical bills.
Norton, a Jason Lee Middle School teacher and mother of four, has breast cancer. In August, when she had a head shaving party, LeMaitre showed up with his new look.
“Bald men are a dime-a-dozen,” he writes in his Tumblr blog MachismoChemo. “I wanted to support my friend in a way that helps me understand, even just a little bit, what she’d going through or at least let her know that someone in our neighborhood is getting ever stranger looks than she” .
If you would like to help Norton and extend LeMaitre’s extraordinary act of goodwill, you can visit the Norton gofundme site, make a donation, and write the words “chemo challenge”.
