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.
