Doherty decided she wanted to support her mother’s struggle, all while raising money for cancer equipment.

After several months of fundraising, Doherty raised $3,157. She decided that on the day of her Mom’s last treatment, she would shave her own head.

The money raised went into the Cancer Diagnostic and Treatment Fund at the Fort St. John Hospital Foundation.

The fund is used to purchase equipment that aid in diagnosing and treating cancer.
