Their original goal was to raise $500. By the time the shaving started, the Meyers raised over $3,000 through “Buzz Off for Kids with Cancer.” “The premise of honoring these people that passed away and really helping people today that are fighting this disease, for a 9-year-old, they have all these other things in their mind, to really focus on that is really, it’s amazing,” Vivian’s mother Jennifer Meyer said. “It’s really cool that everybody did it and donated a lot of money,” Vivian said.
In her family, three of her grandparents died from cancer and one of her former teachers shaved her head after losing her 5-year-old son to the disease. Six months ago, Vivian Meyer told her mother she wanted to get her head shaved. While that may sound like an unusual request for a girl that age, for Vivian the reason was special.
“My hair was brownish, blondish and it was up to here and I shaved it,” Meyer said. In New Hampshire, a 9-year-old girl made a bold move to help kids with cancer. The 3rd grader raised thousands by shaving her head.
“It feels good because when they rub it, it tickles me kinda,” she said. Vivian hopes to one day meet kids impacted by cancer and the money raised to help them. For now, Vivian will simply enjoy her new hair.
“She is an amazing girl, she’s going to do amazing things, starting with this,” she said. Her mother beamed with pride.
