Eight-year-old Chyann Declue had her head shaved at a cancer fundraiser she organized Saturday. She said she was nervous but wanted to raise money for children fighting cancer. The event benefited the Toby Keith Foundation, which helps children with cancer in Oklahoma.
Between 300 and 400 people came to Riveted Church for the event. There was a dunk tank, magician, bounce house, martial arts demonstrations, music, food, a silent auction, and more. Toby Keith donated an autographed Red Solo Cup for the auction.
Chyann's father, Tom, has been a frequent fundraiser for Ryder Herring, a young boy fighting brain cancer. Both Tom and Ryder came to support Chyann Saturday. Tom said he was very proud of Chyann and thought her new haircut was "cute."
The Declue family said they will continue to accept donations for Chyann's fundraiser through next week. Those interested in donating may stop by the family office at 208 Bulldog Boulevard.
