Snoopy and Other Cartoon Friends Go Bald for Kids With Cancer

Cancer treatment is tough for kids, but dealing with hair loss on top of chemo can be overwhelming and isolating.

In an effort to make the baldness a little less jarring, Snoopy, Garfield and Hello Kitty are going bald, too. This is all a part of the Brazilian-based ‘Bald Cartoons’ campaign, which was so successful it even got tweeted by Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff.

One child summed up the purpose of the project perfectly: "I thought that if I took my hat off at school people would laugh, but now I don't feel that anymore."

It doesn’t make cancer treatment a walk in the park for the little guys, but hopefully it will make their lives feel a little more normal.
