JAMESTOWN – Officers with the Jamestown Police Department have shaved their heads to support one of their own currently undergoing chemotherapy.
The department, in a post on social media, shared images of Jamestown’s finest taking part in shaving their heads.
“While walking this Earth, everyone you meet or come into contact with is facing a battle that you will likely never know about, understand, or experience,” the post said. “In the event that you do know about their battle, you may never know exactly what it is like for them.”
The thread goes on to say that there are many reasons for not having hair on your head, including chemotherapy.
“If you live in or visit Jamestown and have the opportunity to see, meet, or talk to a Jamestown Police Officer – you may notice many of us currently have our heads shaved. That’s because one of our own is currently fighting one of those battles that many of us will never experience – cancer,” the post continued. “And although we may never truly understand what it is like – cancer is a battle that no one should ever have to fight alone. You should tell people how important they are to you. Always. #CancerSucks”
