Last summer, Wayland fifth- grader Isabella “Issi” Carrara read a Boston Globe Magazine article describing how Medford children’s musician Alastair Moock’s recent album, “Singing Our Way Through: Songs for the World’s Bravest Kids,” was inspired by his 6-year-old daughter Clio’s battle with leukemia.
Issi was moved by the portrayal of Moock having his head shaved during a video shoot for his song “When I Get Bald.” Determined to make her own difference in the fight against pediatric cancer, she culminated a six-week fund-raising effort netting $12,000 for Lucy’s Love Bus by getting a buzz cut on stage with six others at a Jan. 17 concert at Wayland High School, at which Moock performed with Clio and her twin sister, Elsa.
