Days after raising more than $35,000, event organizer faces her own skin cancer removal
Although the official numbers are not yet ready, Jack’s Chattanoggins raised at least $35,000 for the Children’s Hospital at Erlanger during this year’s head-shaving event.
Days later, Jack Skowronnek’s mother, Dawn Skowronnek, had surgery to remove skin cancer from her face.
“I was putting off my cancer surgery so I could plan the event to benefit the kids going through it,” she said. “There is definitely irony there.”
