BREWER - Brewer Hannaford employee Linda Boone has experienced a lot of loss during her life. Her father passed from cancer last year, her son died of spinal meningitis and now Boone is bracing for another loss - her hair.

"I fixed it the other day and I thought, 'Wow - this is going to be all gone,'" she said.

Boone's co-workers have organized a team called The Wolfpack for the upcoming Bark for Life event in Bangor. She told her teammates she'd willingly shave her head if she raised $1,000. All the proceeds from the event benefit the American Cancer Society. Boone said despite her many losses she has a lot to celebrate and wants to support the ongoing effort to find a cure for cancer.
