The wonderful show of support from the Indianapolis Colts family for their head coach Chuck Pagano extends beautifully to the team's cheerleaders. 

Web Pro News reports a cheerleader has agreed to shave off her hair to support the team's head coach who continues to battle leukemia. 

As we reported earlier in the month, Colts players including star Andrew Luck decided to shave their heads in support of the coach who had to leave the team earlier in the season when he was diagnosed with cancer. 

Now comes news that the show of support will extend to a young woman who goes by Megan M. 

The move comes in response to the team's website that is now publicising Blue’s CHUCKSTRONG Challenge

The challenge comes from the team's mascot who issued, "if he could raise $10,000 for leukemia research by November 25, one cheerleader would agree to have her head shaved in honor of Coach Pagano."

The cheerleader is the lovely Megan who sounded off on her decision to local news RTV6

Blue challenged any of us cheerleaders. If he would raise $10,000 for cancer research, he asked if any of us would shave our head at the next game. 

Because of myself having friends who've been affected by cancer. And family members and my volunteer work, it was just something I absolutely wanted to do. 

Hopefully, we get to see a bald-headed Megan at the next home game, because that will mean Blue received the $10,000 limit. 

If not, there is already a great deal of good news as the 52-year old is in complete remission.
