Shaved family helps charity

The Make-A-Wish Foundation are the big winners thanks to a Rocky Mountain House family that shaved their heads for the Northern Alberta chapter of the foundation. Tara Goossens said her husband, Rob and daughters Breanna and Amber raised a total of $10, 608.85 for the charity. The Goossens had hoped to raise about $5,000 when they started their project more than a month ago. The family wanted to help the foundation because when she was born, Breanna was diagnosed with leukemia, which is now in remission, her mother said. Tara credits the Rocky community as being the real heroes for the foundation by being so generous.
