Calusa Elementary family donates hair to benefit childhood cancer

Isaac Goby’s fistful of hair dangled next to his face mask, concealing the smile beneath.

The fifth-grader was elated to donate his blond locks to the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, a childhood cancer fundraiser championed by his school, Calusa Elementary in Boca Raton.

“I did this because my neighbor has cancer and I wanted my hair to go to kids just like him,” Isaac, 11 said. “It makes me very happy because I feel bad for kids suffering with cancer, and this helps them.”

Donating hair is a family affair for the Gobys: Mom and dad, Dalia and Adam, and sister, Dylan, a Calusa third-grader, also have given their strands in support of St. Baldrick’s. In fact, the parents have been doing it for years, and even have their hair chopped onstage during a live event at the school.
