Katrina Celestial, 7, a second-grader at Smithsburg Elementary School, recently donated 11 inches of her hair to Locks of Love.
She is the daughter of Conrad of Chambersburg, Pa., and Joann of Smithsburg.
Dusty Murray did the honors at Simplicity Salon and Spa in Hagerstown.
Katrina has grown her hair since birth and after learning about cancer and the hair loss associated with the disease, said that she wanted to give her hair to the kids who had lost their hair to cancer. In addition, her mom's friend recently passed away from cancer and her grandmother is a cancer survivor. After her sister donated her hair to Locks of Love, she thought the effort needed to become a family tradition.
