St. Baldrick's had their annual head shaving event at Jillian's to raise money for childhood cancer research.

"We love doing things together as a family," Debey Hancock said.

The Hancocks joined hundreds to get haircuts for the cause.

"Bald is beautiful and what's on the inside is what comes out that makes you beautiful, not what you look like, your hair," she said.

William Hancock said he's been waiting to go bald.

"It was driving me nuts. I started in November letting it grow back and I couldn't wait for this day to get here to shave it again," he said.

And their daughter Joy was the one who got the ball rolling.

"She talked me into doing it for the second year, because I was going to skip this year, but she talked me into doing it the second year," Debey said. "She said, 'I'll shave if mom will shave.' So we did and here we are."

On the count of three, the clippers started to hum and all the hair on their heads fell to the floor.

"I think it's the pre-jitters that's harder than the act because once you sit in the chair you don't think of anything else," she said.

"It was more exciting doing it as a family especially with the little one wanting to do it. I thought once she got in the chair, she was going to change her mind, but, nope, she stuck with it. And I'm very proud of her," William said.

This is Columbia's 7th time hosting the event. They've already passed their goal of $75,000.
