Mom of Colorado girl who shaved head for cancer-stricken pal says focus should be shifted

Posted: Updated:

DENVER (AP) -- The mother of a Grand Junction, Colo., third-grader who shaved her head in solidarity with a cancer-stricken friend is asking for an end to the national furor over a school's short-lived decision to bar her from campus, so the focus can shift to the recovery of her 11-year-old friend.

The board of directors of the charter school, the Caprock Academy, voted Tuesday to let Kamryn Renfro remain. Officials had earlier barred her, saying she violated the dress code by shaving her head over the weekend.

The Denver Post reported Wednesday that Kamryn's mother, Jamie Olson Renfro, took her daughter to Denver Tuesday to be with her friend ahead of a hospital visit. Renfro called on people who have been following the story to support Delaney Clements, who has been fighting childhood cancer since she was 7.
