Two years ago, a six-year-old boy Christian McPhilamy, who lives in Florida, saw an advertisement by a St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. The hospital's mission was donating hair to cancer suffering kids.
Inspired by the advertisement, Christian decided to grow his hair. His decision was not that easy; all his classmates used to tease him by calling him a girl. The courageous kid with a big strong heart did not deter and grew his hair in two years.
Now, he has donated 10-inches-long locks of his hair to make wigs for children being treated for cancer. Mcphilamy became the motivation for all of us and he taught that there are many ways to help people.
