Someone 2 Know: Brave, Bald & Beautiful

Posted: Updated:
Two gorgeous teenagers -- who are arguably even more beautiful on the inside -- got the entire Wooster High School campus talking without having to say one word. Meet the Munson sisters in tonight's Someone 2 Know.
    
Meetings, greetings and hugs between classes on the Colts' campus is nothing new for the Munson sisters.

"Except for the constantly rubbing of my head to feel how soft it is."
    
But yes, their look is.
    
Senior, Rachel and her younger sister, Allison had long golden locks. That is until recently - when they decided together - to do this...

"Everyone was watching and being so supportive of us and everything."

"I was getting the chills. I was so excited.
“As they were shaving?”
“Yeah."
    
In front of the Wooster student body - an act of bravery that most teenaged girls wouldn't dare.
    
Their goal? To raise awareness and money for the thousands of fellow young people out there fighting cancer.
    
They raised $6,000 to be exact including hundreds from their classmates.

"It was the coolest thing ever. Half the school came or more and we had pizza and there was a DJ."
    
The Munson sisters don't have any close relatives fighting cancer right now, but they say that doesn't mean the disease is any less real... and they wanted to remind their classmates of the importance of looking out for one another, the community and even kids with cancer they don't know.

"We all think we can stand around and wait for a cure to happen, but we can all do so much more to help."

As they walk around the halls now, they're reminding teens every day that beauty isn't just what's trendy or popular, but instead - it's caring for and inspiring others.

"I've already gotten three girls to donate their hair who go to this school."   

And their message is being heard around campus loud and clear.

"Despite our differences, we're all just one big family."   

All that hair they shaved off will go to Locks of Love... again.

This is Rachel's third donation and Allison's fourth.
