Shea Duffy wanted to help raise funds for Memorial Sloan Kettering after his aunt, Anne Duffy, was diagnosed earlier this year with breast cancer.

Shea agreed to shave his head in return for donations. On Sunday, he lost his hair but Memorial Sloan Kettering gained $50,200. Shea crushed his original fundraising goal of $10,000.

“This cause is close to my heart because my Aunt Anne has gone through a battle with breast cancer,” the 12-year-old Maspeth resident said. “I want to help other families who face this illness” the 12 year old stated.
