Jeffrey Ferchoff (son of Karen and the late Gord Ferchoff), is attending school in Lethbridge, Alberta and is studying Criminal Justice in the Policing Program. He may later apply to enter the RCMP. Jeff and about eight others in his class are going to shave their heads with the proceeds to be used as a cancer fund raiser. Jeff's mom, Karen has place boxes around town to help her son collect money for this endeavour. Anyone wanting to contribute to this worthy cause may do so, but they will have to do it soon. Karen has to have the money in by noon of November 28. "Giving up their hair" isn't something new in this family. Jeff's younger brother Matthew grows his hair into long pony tails and then has the hair cut off and sends it into Winnipeg to the Wigs for Kids program. Matthew is presently working on his second donation. What a great and painless way to help a worthy cause.
