QUINCY, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — You'll be seeing a lot more bald police officers in Quincy.
More than 50 members of the Quincy Police Department shaved their heads Monday to raise money for St. Baldrick's Foundation and to support one of their own—the young son of Quincy Patrol Officer Tera Waters.
"Its definitely a brotherhood, sisterhood," Officer Andrew Keenan told WBZ NewsRadio's Shari Small. "Something like this affects one of them, it affects all of us."
Three-year-old Quinn is battling brain cancer, and Waters said her son frequently mentions his hair loss.
"Quinn's stuck in the hospital, and to see these guys coming out here and doing this, it really shows my family how much they all care," Officer Waters said."I'm gonna show him pictures of all the guys, and it might make him feel a little less out of place."
Lt. Mark Kennedy said it shows Quinn—or "Mighty Quinn" as he's known—that he's not alone.
"He's fighting hard, and we're all just shaving our heads to show him that he's not fighting alone," Kennedy said.
