Mia is in kindergarten and the daughter of a nurse I work with. She had very long hair and decided to get it cut. But before getting it cut, Mia grew it out as long as she could so that she could donate her hair to Locks of Love – a non-profit organization that provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children in the U.S. and Canada, who have long term hair loss due to a medical condition.

Mia grew her hair out so long that when she finally got it cut, she was able to donate 12-inches!
The reason Mia is my hero is because she donated her hair in my honor. Thank you, Mia. I am so honored and I will never forget your act of kindness.
