The City of Navasota, Navasota Police and Fire Departments are participating in “No Razor November” this month to raise awareness of cancer. This year’s annual event will raise funds for 5-year-old Gabriel Goode, a hometown cancer fighter and survivor.
Members of the City are ditching their razors all November to “grow” awareness of the terrible impact of cancer. Participants willing to take part in No Razor November are encouraged to donate $40 to the cause. The donation box will be at the Navasota Police Department Records division, located at City Hall, 200 E McAlpine Street, Navasota TX 77868.
The money collected will go directly towards young Gabriel Goode and assist the family with his medical bills.

Doctors discovered he had an 11cm tumor that had ruptured and was bleeding internally. He was later diagnosed with hepatoblastoma, a rare liver cancer that attacks one in a million children. Gabriel has undergone several surgeries chemo, and numerous blood transfusions. He recently returned to school. Funds raised will assist the family with medical bills.
