Act of Solidarity Gets Colorado Student Kicked Out of Class
GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KDVR) — A 9-year-old girl was kept out of class Monday, because of her support for a friend who is fighting cancer.
Colorado student Kamryn decided to shave off all of her hair in solidarity to support a friend who was starting chemotherapy to treat cancer.
“I was really excited I would have somebody to support me and I wouldn’t be alone with people always laughing at me. I would at least have somebody to go through it all,” says Delaney, who just began chemotherapy.
But Kamryn’s school, Caprock Academy, has a policy against shaved heads for girls. The school told her she couldn’t come back to class until she got a wig or her natural hair grew back because her shaved head violates the dress code.
