“Kimi” Cuts Hair for Cancer Support


Professor of Japanese Kimihiko Nomura will cut his waist-length hair to raise funds for cancer patients.
Tai chi, origami, Japanese food, and discussions of healthy living will be part of Inch by Inch: Sustaining Health across Cultures on Sunday, May 13, 6–9 pm in the BMU Auditorium. Admission is $10, $6 for students.

Nomura and Japanese studies students are soliciting donations of up to $500 for each inch of Nomura’s hair. Nomura will donate the hair to Locks of Love, a nonprofit organization that provides wigs to cancer patients.

Proceeds will benefit Cancer Connections at Enloe Cancer Center and the CSU, Chico Japanese Program Scholarship Fund.

“ The Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures at CSU, Chico has been touched time and again by the reality of cancer,” Nomura said. “We are asking our diverse community to come together to consider how to sustain health across cultures.”
