A local leader in Racine gets involved in fundraising for a boy fighting brain cancer. Racine Council President Jeff Coe agreed to allow top contributors, in helping with 4-year old Fischer Hansen’s medical bills, a chance at shaving his hair onto the council floor. With more than $1500 pledged or in-hand, Coe’s curly blonde locks fell by the wayside like a sheep sheering, most of his colleagues enjoying every slice.
A professional stylist did cleanup on the chop jobs, with the boy’s grandfather giving Coe the same green chemo-therapy cap that Fisher Hansen is wearing these days, the boy too ill to attend from his first round of treatment. Fisher, by the way, wants to be a firefighter.
