1st Grader Shaves Head to Support Friend With Cancer

Missouri first graders Zac Gossage and Vincent Butterfield are great friends, so it's probably no surprise that when Vincent found out that Zac was sick, he wanted to help—in a big way.

Last June, Zac was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia, a cancer of the white blood cells, according to WTNH News in Connecticut. And despite being tired from all of the treatments, Zac didn't miss a day of school.

After Vincent started asking questions about his friend and the disease, he decided he wanted to help Zac with the medical costs. So Vincent helped make scarves with his family and sold them for $15 each, raising about $200.

And whom did he give the money to?

"Zac," he told WTNH.

But it didn't end there.

Vincent also decided to shave his head in support of Zac, "to make Zac feel like he's not the only one without any hair."

Now that's friendship!
