Locks of Love

Madison donated her hair today to Locks of Love. She had been growing it for about a year. This is her first real styled cut. I think she looked so cute. It hit Daddy hard when he saw it but now he loves it. Madison LOVES her new cut.

Locks of Love is a public non-profit organization that provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children in the United States and Canada under age 18 suffering from long-term medical hair loss from any diagnosis. We meet a unique need for children by using donated hair to create the highest quality hair prosthetics. Most of the children helped by Locks of Love have lost their hair due to a medical condition called alopecia areata, which has no known cause or cure. The prostheses we provide help to restore their self-esteem and their confidence, enabling them to face the world and their peers.

Oh my gosh, David wouldn't let me back in the house if I cut Sarah's hair (lol). But I love your daughter's cut-- it is so cute! What a great blessing for her to donate that thick beautiful hair!
