30 Before And After Pics Of People Who Cut Off Their Long Hair And Donated It To Cancer Patients

Published 4 years ago

There are many conditions that may cause a person to lose their hair, with alopecia areata and cancer treatments being just a few examples. No matter the condition, losing one’s hair can be devastating, especially for kids – that’s why wigs often become the only option. And, as weird as it may sound, there’s no better material for a realistic-looking wig than real human hair.

Instead of simply cutting their hair off and throwing it away, some people are choosing to donate it to charities that make wigs for cancer patients. One person gets a makeover while the other one gets a nice wig – it’s a win-win situation when you think about it. Check out the people who grew out their hair and donated it to cancer patients in the gallery below!

2 years ago my son saw a St. Jude commercial that changed his life forever. He chose to do his own research and find a way to help. After 2 years of growing his hair, Christian has reached his goal of donating over 10 inches in 4 ponytails. He has chosen to donate to the “Children with hair loss” foundation. He has endured an awful lot of criticism, and yes even bullying, throughout this time. From his peers calling him a girl to even coaches and family friends telling him he should cut it or offering him money to. Even still, he has never once, strayed from his goal and always took the time to educate others on why he made the choice to grow his hair. I am one proud mommy as always.

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
