CLEVELAND — It was a party of a different kind at one Cleveland home on Monday -- one hoping to spread awareness and inspiration. 

Janet Montoya is manager of MetroHealth's Community health advocacy program.

She was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. 

Surrounded by family and friends, Janet shaved her head in preparation for chemotherapy, and to donate her long hair for wigs for children battling the disease. 

She says it may sound odd to throw a party, but for her it was therapeutic.
