Gronkowski shaves head to help raise awareness of pediatric cancer

New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski did his part to raise awareness for pediatric cancer on Sunday morning.

Gronkowski participated in the fifth annual Kid’™s Cancer Buzz Off at Gillette Stadium, shaving his head at the event which raises money for the One Mission — an organization that raises money to help families dealing with pediatric cancer.

Gronkowski’™s mother actually did the honors, and although Gronk was a little nervous about her getting some payback on him, she got the job done painlessly and easily.
