SAN ANTONIO -- A group of volunteers went bald on Sunday in support of childhood cancer.

The group is called 'the 46 mommas'-- 46 is the number of mothers who are told each weekday in the U.S. that their child has cancer. Each member of the organization has close ties to a child diagnosed with cancer.

The haircut was symbolic of the fact that the disease doesn't discriminate based on age.

The group has raised over $1 million dollars towards pediatric cancer research.
