The Indianapolis Colt's head coach Chuck Pagano is feeling the love and support from the cheerleaders. Pagano, is currently going under chemotherapy treatments for leukemia and has lost his hair.

He has support from the sidelines! The Colt's mascot, Blue, challenged all cheerleaders asking if any would shave their heads if he raised $10,000 for leukemia research. Cheerleaders, Megan and Crystal Ann took him up on the challenge. $22,670.50 came in from online donations and buzzzzzz, their hair came off! :)

"I've just had personal experiences with people who have had cancer," Megan said to WISH-TV. "I've had mentors and family members and volunteer at Riley and met little girls who have lost their hair and beat cancer multiple times. Just seeing struggles they went through and how they could overcome that and still have confidence and fight this fight without their hair — they are really my inspiration for doing this."

Coach Pagano received a standing ovation at their last game and mouthed an appreciative “thank you” to the cheering crowd.

 

Peace & Love,
