    Eight Utah elementary students are showing
    their support of a fellow classmate
    by taking one for the team.

    When third-grader Emmalee Havertz
    missed a whole month of school for
    treatment of a rare liver cancer,
    the course of chemotherapy caused her to lose her hair.
    A student's mom, Cari Carroll,
    decided she'd rally the boys in the class to show
    Havertz how much they care by ... shaving their heads!
    "I thought this was something they could give
    back to her and show support for her and say,
    'I did something for someone else,'" Carroll explained.

    And do something they did!
    With help from one boy's grandpa -- a local barber
    -- the kids set up a video camera
    and recorded the whole event.
    As the eight boys got buzzed,
    newly shorn classmate Tyler said,
    "We're going to shave our heads
    'cause Emmalee Havertz has cancer and she lost her hair;
    so we're going to show her that she's not alone
    and we can shave our heads, too!"

    As for Emmalee, she received a DVD of the
    whole event to lift her spirits before her
    second round of chemo. Smooth move, indeed!
