LA CROSSE, Wis. - A La Crosse woman isn't fighting cancer herself, but she shaved her head anyway to show support for others.
Colleen Gran is one of the character's in this weekend's performance of "Pirates of the Chemotherapy." It's a dramatic comedy focusing on a support group of six women all fighting breast cancer.
As a way to connect with her character, Gran shaved her head and is donating her hair to 'Locks of Love.'
It's something she's wanted to do for a few months now and says it's fitting given the role she's playing. "She's really lost a lot in her life, and I feel like losing my hair like she lost her hair will help me connect with her," said Gran.
