Hana Fuller, 11, a fifth-grader at Eastern Elementary School in Hagerstown, had her hair cut for the Locks of Love program. Locks of Love provides wigs for children who have lost their hair due to illness.
“I donated my hair to Locks of Love because I knew of a girl who did that and I thought it is a very nice and generous thing to do for children with cancer,” Hana said.
“After I got my hair cut, I felt really proud of myself for doing it and knowing that someday a child will be getting my hair to be worn.
“Also, my parents were really proud of me for doing this and supported me step by step. My family supported me, as well as my cat and fish. Also, my friends and teachers from school, ballet and religious school supported me.
“My dance teacher has been really nice about the whole getting my hair cut thing because my hair is now too short to put up in a proper bun. I love the feeling of my short hair and knowing where the rest of my hair will be someday.”
