MIAMI - A Miami fire department has gone bald to support one of its firefighters whose son is battling cancer.
Three-year-old Jesse James was diagnosed with leukemia about three weeks ago.
Miami firefighter Jesse Santerre wanted to shave his son's head rather than have his hair fall out.
However, Jesse was afraid to cut his hair, so his dad and his fellow firefighters showed him he had nothing to fear and let Jesse cut their hair.
"It means a lot. Since day one it's been a brotherhood within the fire department, and the outcome today just makes it a lot stronger," said Santerre.
Doctors said they hope this week's test results will show Jesse's cancer is in remission.
