The Colts have made a huge priority of supporting Coach Pagano and, by extension, leukemia research.

Earlier this season, players, including star rookie QB Andrew Luck, shaved their heads to show solidarity with their coach.

And today, after the team raised more than $22,000 toward leukemia research, Megan and Crystal Anne took the same step.

Both women had their heads shaved during the game and then went back to cheering afterward.

Coach Pagano was at the game, and you could see how much the support seemed to mean to him. Here he mouths "thank you" to the crowd.
