Remember Kelsey Culp? She was a CMN miracle child when she was two since she was born with a digestive problem.
Today, at age 10, Kelsey is healthy now and decided today to do something to help others who are sick.
"I want kids who don't have hair to know what it feels like to actually have hair,"said Kelsey.
Kelsey had been planning for some time to cut her hair for Locks of Love, but it became very emotional today at "Always Hair" salon. In fact, Kelsey's teacher, Mrs. Sally Johnson from Cooper North, was also there to comfort her because Kelsey was donating her hair in honor of a special family friend they had lost to cancer.
"We had a dear friend that was battling breast cancer. Kelsey had become very close with her and she was there when she was going through her treatments and began to lose her hair," said Doug Culp, Kelsey's dad.
Kelsey has a new look today and somewhere, a child will have Kelsey's real hair woven into a special wig, thanks to Locks of Love. Locks of Love collects pony tails to make wigs for kids who have lost their hair to cancer and other diseases.
If you or someone you know might be interested in donating hair to locks of love. There are specific guidelines starting with at least a 10-inch pony tail. To learn more about Locks of Love, go to their web site at http://www.locksoflove.org.
