Bald is beautiful

Sammy Mederos and others shave their heads for St. Baldrick's fundraiser

Washougal cancer survivor Sammy Mederos said goodbye to her long locks of curly hair, which were shaved off during a fundraiser for the St. Baldrick’s Foundation this afternoon at Washougal High School.

Mederos, now a third-grader at Cape Horn-Skye Elementary School, was diagnosed with leukemia when she was in kindergarten. She and her family helped organize the event, which included participation by Washougal Mayor Sean Guard and Cape Horn-Skye Elementary School secretary Mary La France–a breast cancer survivor.
