Stories like this make me smile.

A high school principal in Vermont was recently diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and the students have been super supportive.  Patrick Burke has been the principal at South Burlington High School for 12 years and is extremely popular with his students.  First, the students made a video to Pharrell’s song “Happy” holding up Get Well signs. But then they decided to take it one step further.

Last Tuesday the students went "Bald for Burke Day." About 30 students and faculty had their HEADS SHAVED in the school's auditorium.  Which raised $2,500 for the American Cancer Society.  Principle Burke showed up after completing his second round of chemo and shaved his head too.  He has promised his students that he WILL beat it! 

Great guy!
