A single fundraising effort saw not one, but two Vernon ladies shed their locks in support of a cure for cancer.

The Vancaillie twins, Davia and Naomi, are now proudly donning shaved heads, after raising $1,230.

The twin sisters wanted to honor and support those near and dear to them, family, friends, ‘brothers’ and ‘sisters’ whose lives have been affected by cancer and other challenging illnesses.

The sisters think the strength, courage, and perseverance of those faced with cancer are exemplary. Therefore the twins whole-heartedly shed their locks for them on Nov. 25.

Prior to the big shave, the sisters started an event page cancerevents.kintera.org/twins with the Canadian Cancer Society, which allowed the women to accept donations for a month prior to the big day.

The twins found that as they openly shared about their upcoming event friends and friends of friends shared their stories, personal or otherwise.

The twins were able to exceed their $1,000 fundraising goal and are ever grateful for the generosity of those around them.
