Scouts go bald to support Ethan

Send a link to a friend

[October 05, 2012]  This Saturday, Lincoln Scouts will support a Cub Scout with cancer.

Ethan is a 9-year-old boy who has abdominal cancer, the same cancer that took the life of his father. His family has faced many hardships. Some of Ethan's appointments have been in St. Louis, and he has spent the night in the car because they could not afford a hotel room.

Ethan underwent chemo and radiation about three weeks ago and lost his hair. In a gesture of support for Ethan, several Scouts have shaved their heads.

On Saturday, Boy Scout Troop 111 and Cub Scout Pack 111 will sell popcorn at Kroger and Wal-Mart for their annual fundraiser. Both units have volunteered to donate any cash donations received that day to Ethan's family.

Arrangements for donations can also be made by contacting Jason Schafer, scoutmaster, at 737-3068 or Jessica Shull, pack fundraising chair, at 217-870-0192.
