CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) – Last week, a student at St. Edward-Epiphany Catholic School in Richmond went to the doctor for a simple rash on his chest. Within hours, he had been diagnosed with Leukemia.

“It’s been hard, its been a big adjustment, I know that it’s devastating when you hear that,” said Abby McDonald with the school.

Ever since, Noah Cross has been undergoing treatment at VCU Medical Center. To help raise money for his treatments, Cross’ classmates and teachers decided to hold a fundraiser called “Buzz Cuts for Noah.” Hair Productions of Salisbury provided the cuts. Students and teachers made donations to have their head buzzed in support of Noah.

“If you’re doing something for the right reason, when you look back at it it’s going to be even more special to you than it is when you do it,” said student Sam Graziano.

In total 37 students (5 of which were girls), two faculty members and two alums got their heads buzzed to support Noah. Students raised $2067 Monday. A GoFundMe page has been set up and has already raised $9400.
