100 Students Face The Shears To Support 6th Grader With Cancer

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Friends of a Minnesota 6th grader who’s fighting cancer got together on Wednesday to show their support.

Tate Maurer learned last month he has Burkitt’s lymphoma. He’ll soon lose his hair because of treatment, but he decided to get a jump start and have it shaved-off instead.

More than 100 kids at Clearwater Middle School did the same. And so did Maurer’s dad.

According to Tate’s Caringbridge site, his type of cancer is highly curable, but he’ll need six months of chemotherapy.
