Ventura Girl Donates Locks for Children's Cancer Research

VENTURA, Calif. - A St. Baldrick fundraising event at Foothill Technology High School Friday afternoon brought many people out to donate. However, one very brave little girl did what few would dare. Courtney Corbett decided to shave off her hair in support of Children's Cancer Research.

Corbett's father, Kevin Corbett, works as an Engineer with the Santa Barbara City Fire Department and works at Fire Station 8, Santa Barbara Airport. The family recently found out Kevin Corbett has cancer and will start chemotherapy on Monday, March 17th.

Courtney's original fundraising goal was $750 but so far she has exceeded that amount to raise $1,420 so far.
