Girls Shave Their Heads to Support 7-Year-Old Friend Battling Cancer

Seven-year-old Leighton Accardo has the support of her pals as she battles cancer and undergoes chemotherapy. 

Leighton’s two friends Emily and Katie decided to shave their heads with her so she wouldn’t feel so alone. 

“I wanted to be supportive of Leighton, and we’re really good friends, and I just wanted to help her” . 

The three girls, who are all members of the local softball and hockey teams in Chandler, held hands as their heads were shorn. 

“Thank you, guys,” Leighton said.
