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

The group is called The 46 Mommas, because 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 towards pediatric cancer research.
