Lincoln, Neb.-- Kipton Krumland was only five-and-a-half months old when he was diagnosed with infant leukemia.
Shortly after, he underwent an unrelated bone marrow transplant.
Almost two years later, Kipton is cancer free, but thousand of children worldwide aren't as lucky.
"Hearing your child has cancer is absolutely devastating," Kipton's mother, Erin Krumland, said.
To help families fighting pediatric cancer, Red 9, in conjunction with local marketing company Firespring and the St. Baldrick's Foundation, hosted a head shaving and raffle.
The goal was to raise $20,000, and about 40 people showed up to shave their heads and help those in need.
Wendi Jensen has shaved her head for the St. Baldrick's Foundation every year for the last five, and said it's the least she can do for a good cause.
"It's a way that I can give," Jensen said.
"About once a year, my hair grows to where it's shaveable, and people are willing to pay for it. So, I'm willing to give up my hair."
By the end of the night, volunteers said they hit their mark of $20,000, and were still counting.
Volunteers and families say getting kids like Kipton back on their feet is all that matters.
"Find support," Erin Krumland said, "it's there, but it is tough."
