James Seeber, a Fort Saskatchewan local, will be cutting his hair for cancer.
 
His month-long fundraiser for the Canadian Cancer Society is meant to raise money for cancer research while bringing awareness to the issue.
 
Seeber has been growing his hair for nearly ten years, and plans to cut and donate it on March 31.
 
"Donating my hair is important to me. If my hair can help someone feel better through their fight, then that's worth it," he said.
 
With the cooperation of Concrete Blonde and Barbers, Seeber hopes that whoever makes the largest contribution to his campaign will get to make the first chop.
 
Seeber lost his grandmother, Evelyn Heiland, to cancer last year. She is his inspiration for the fundraiser.
 
"For me, it's just great to see all the support in the community," he said.
 
Seeber hopes to raise $1000.
 
Members of the community can support James here.
