Hers today and someone else’s tomorrow

You grow 16 inches of hair and what have you got? A donation to the Canadian Cancer Society

After patiently waiting to grow her hair out to 16 inches to donate, Sydney Kirby, 10, gave it and $1,300 she raised to the Canadian Cancer Society recently.

She raised the money in two weeks, thanks to many generous family members and friends, says her mother Connie, adding Sydney decided to donate her hair about a year ago.

“I’m so happy someone will get my beautiful blonde hair!” said Sydney, adding how glad she is at how little work it now takes to wash and dry.

Her mother said Sydney is always thinking of others, and has the biggest heart.
