Let it Grow: SNJ Today News Duo Ditch Razors for Cancer Fundraiser

Last Edited:

It's time for No Shave November and our Mike Frankel and Nor'easter Nick Pittman are doing their part to support those fighting cancer.

The men are ditching the razor to take part in No Shave November to raise money and awareness for those battling cancer.

No Shave November started out in 2009 by the Chicagoland Hill family after a member passed away two years prior from colon cancer.

The foundation was started to symbolize the hair that many cancer patients lose when going through chemotherapy and other treatment options.

To date, the organization has raised more than $2 million.
