FOXBORO (CBS) — A barber in Foxboro went above and beyond for a customer. Sandra Smith, 40, of Attleboro, was recently diagnosed with stage four metastatic breast cancer and decided she needed to shave her hair.
“When I started cutting her hair I saw her start to become emotional so I decide to support her,” said Barber Georges Atieh.READ MORE: Injuries Reported At Car Crash In South Boston
He joined her and shaved his own head as well.
“I said I want to support you and now we look the same,” said Atieh.READ MORE: State Workers Face Sunday Deadline To Get COVID Vaccine Or Risk Losing Jobs
Smith said in a world where people barely take a minute to speak to a stranger, Atieh deserves recognition for what he did.
“I definitely didn’t expect that at all. I told myself I wasn’t going to cry while I was shaving my hair off and I was trying to keep calm but as soon as he did that it was such a shock but so touching,” she said.MORE NEWS: Lawrence Teachers Will Rally Before School In Response To Increased Fighting
