GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WZZM) -- Hundreds of people gathered at a Grand Rapids school Friday night, many of whom lined up for a very special haircut.
They gathered to "Be Brave and Shave" at Crossroads Middle School on Ambrose Ave. NE, in honor of 14-year-old Schuyler Kleibusch. He was recently diagnosed with lymphoblastic lymphoma.
Just last week, he began a two-year treatment of chemotherapy.
We spoke to Schuyler's mother, who says her son's cancer is a very difficult journey and the support of the community makes an impact.
"Having that support system here is wonderful," she said. "It's a wonderful feeling. It's a feeling of, 'Yeah we can get through this.' As any cancer patient needs, they need that boost of confidence."
