When families Shave together

 Back to Recent News

We love seeing family togetherness. Parents spending time with their children, siblings playing with one another, cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents, coming together for family reunions. There is something so special about being a part of a family, whether the connection is biological or fostered through love and commitment. The intentional care of a family is a beautiful thing to witness, and it’s particularly touching when families join together to help others.

We have gotten to see this kind of beauty, time and time again, at Shave for the Brave. Families join forces and commit to Shave, together — so that no one has to feel alone.

Shavers like Malik, our youngest Shave Ambassador, and his grandmother, who have been shaving together for several years.

Mother-Daughter duo, Heather and Audrey, donated a combined 20 inches of hair, while raising over $1100!
Shave Ambassador, Dave Steele, and his son, Jack, shaved side-by-side, making each other laugh and encouraging each other, with every stroke of the razor.
These families of Shavers are not unlike the Young Adult Cancer Canada (YACC) family. YACC exists to support young adults living with, through, and beyond cancer and there’s no better example of connection and support than the example set by families who work hard together and have each other’s backs.

Next time you spot a bright, yellow Shave for the Brave toque, thank the person who is wearing it. That person has made a huge difference for young adults with cancer and they are a precious member of the Shave for the Brave family.
