10-Year-Old Boy Spends 2 Years Growing Out His Hair To Donate It To Kids Battling Cancer

When 10-year-old Thomas Moore was eight years old, he saw his mom watching a video about a 5-year-old girl who had lost her hair during chemotherapy. Wanting to do something, Thomas began growing his hair out with hopes that one day he would be able to donate it to kids with cancer. Thomas’ dream came true this week as he chopped off his 16-inch locks and donated them. His hair donation will be enough to make three wigs.
