Family makes bald statement

SINGAPORE - Senior staff nurse Khoo Foong Yin, 48, and her sons had their heads shaved on Thursday in support of the Children's Cancer Foundation.

When the Au brothers (from left) Antonio, 11, Fidelis, 15, and Vincent, nine, signed up for their schools' Hair for Hope event this year, their mother decided to join them.

This is the sixth year that the Montfort schools are organising the event.

This year's event set a record of 208 shavees who include students, parents, teachers and Montfort Secondary's principal, Mr Andrew Tan.
