Firefighters Shave Heads For Sick Co-Worker

Updated:

SMYRNA, Ga. — Friday more than 40 Smyrna firefighters surprised a fellow firefighter, who is battling cancer, with freshly shaved bald heads.

Lt. Tim Dobeck and his crew first proposed the idea last week. Within a week, the entire department was involved to show support for the fellow firefighter.

Engineer Richard Conley, a 26 year Smyrna Fire veteran, was tricked into coming into the department. He also brought his son, Chance Conley, who is a firefighter at Cherokee County Fire and Emergency Services.

Conley is returning to work after fighting throat cancer.
