• Tom Brady gets buzz cut as cancer charity raises $6.5M

    QUINCY, Mass. (AP) - New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady got a buzz cut for a cancer research institute.

    Brady was the mystery guest at Thursday's "Saving by Shaving" annual fundraiser for the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston.

    Brady showed off his new look on Instagram after his long, brown hair was shaved down with a razor.

    Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker had his head shaved too.

    Granite Telecommunications holds the event at its headquarters in Quincy, Massachusetts. The company pledged to give over $5 million to the cancer institute if 1,000 people shaved their heads or beards.

    Granite Telecommunications says 1,200 people participated and it'll contribute $6.5 million for its fifth annual event.

    Brady says it was an honor to join the fun and support the great work of Dana-Farber.
