Eight year old Piper learned about Locks of Love from friends.
She and her mother researched the program on the Internet. The recipients of these hair donations suffer from autoimmune diseases, cancer, or they are victims of trauma such as burns.
When Piper she heard about the kids that Locks of Love helps she was very excited to participate. She said, "I just wanted to make one tiny part of their lives happier."
Even after deciding to participate with her “locks” donation, it took a while for Piper to really be ready for such a big change. One day she just said, "Mom, make the appointment for tomorrow. I'm ready!"
