I want to wear pink gloves and dance through the halls of Carroll Hospital Center after watching this video. I probably won't do that, but I will certainly vote for Carroll Hospital Center in this national competition. The winner will receive a $10,000 donation.

A family supports one of its own by going hair-free in the face of cancer.
