Tabor college swimmers honor coach's wife

(KAKE) -

Five Tabor College swimmers shaved their heads to support and honor their coach's wife.

Cara Duell was diagnosed with Stage 2 triple negative breast cancer in early December.  After two rounds of chemotherapy, she began to lose her hair and chose to shave her head.  Since Cara Duell is a teacher at Canton-Galva High School, she let a student cut off all of her hair.

Cara's Husband, Nate, is the head swim coach at Tabor College in Hillsboro.

The men's swim team showed up at the Duell's house with a big penguin, Cara's favorite candy, and five clean shaven heads.  Nate says the move was completely unexpected, incredibly moving, and very humbling.
