Karen Kolb, right, received a hug from friend Luke Buchta, both of Jasper, after a group of Kolb’s friends, family and co-workers gathered for a party to shave their heads at Snaps in Jasper on Wednesday. Nine people, mostly co-workers from surgical services at Memorial Hospital, including Linda Hoffman, Beth and Dave Head, Jim Eades, Adam LeClere, Shawn Knotts, Kolb’s husband, Charles, and their son, Chris, all of Jasper, decided to shave their heads to support Karen, who began chemotherapy Thursday after being diagnosed with breast cancer March 14.
