After shaving his head to raise money for St. Baldrick's Foundation, Jeremy realized how cold a bald head can get. So now, he collects hats for children with cancer who lose their hair while undergoing chemotherapy.

In addition to Albany Medical Center, hats will be shipped to hospitals and cancer centers in 16 states.

Jeremy is the son of NewsChannel 13 Executive Producer Jeff Wernick.
