Washougal third-grader and cancer survivor Sammy Mederos reacts to getting her long locks of curly blond hair shaved off by Shelby Cummings (left) and Holly Thorpe (right) during a fundraiser for the St. Baldrick’s Foundation Sunday at Washougal High School. Mederos was diagnosed with leukemia when she was in kindergarten. Now cancer-free, she and her parents, Michele and Dennis Mederos, helped organize the event. Her dad also had his head shaved.
