Maryland 10-Year-Old Grows Hair For 2 Years to Make Wigs for Cancer Patients

A 10-year-old Bowie, Maryland boy decided to skip haircuts for two years to donate hair to cancer patients.

In an interview with FOX 5 D.C., fifth-grader Thomas Moore says he was inspired to help after viewing video of Kyssi Andrews battling cancer. His mother told him that some treatments resulted in hair loss.

And that sparked his two-year journey. His mother tells the host that Thomas has a sensitive scalp and that they resorted to putting his hair into an Afro.

“After awhile it was too big and we had to corn row it,” she says. ” … Saving 90 percent of his hair gave three wigs …”

Now, Thomas plans to partner with the young girl’s foundation to donate more hair to those in need.

“I feel like I can make a bunch of people with cancer happy by giving them my hair,” Thomas tells FOX 5.
