Great-aunt's death moved Greencastle girl to donate her hair

August 03, 2008

Rachael Coldsmith of Greencastle, Pa., recently had her hair cut for Locks of Love.

Rachael is a 9-year-old student at Greencastle Antrim Elementary School and will be going into the fourth grade this fall.

She is the daughter of Donnie and Stacey Coldsmith of Greencastle.

After the recent loss of her great-aunt, Rachael said she wanted to do something positive for someone going through the difficult battle and treatment for cancer.

She got on the Internet and found the Web site for Locks of Love. After viewing the site and reading stories of youngsters with various illnesses causing hair loss, she knew that she wanted to donate her hair to the organization.

Rachael had her hair cut by her great-aunt Myrna at Myrna's Shear Dimensions in Chambersburg, Pa. Rachael is pretty excited about having short hair now since this was the first time she's ever had a real hair cut. She says she'd like to keep it short for a little while but will grow it back so she can donate her hair to Locks of Love again.
