A Wallaceburg girl wanted to contribute and help lift the spirits of women battling cancer.
Kyla Rose-Russell, 5, made this happen recently when she donated her long, blonde, curly locks.
The Kindergarten student at Christ the King Catholic School in Wallaceburg chose the Beautiful Lengths program from Pantene to donate her hair.
“I was donating it to people who do not have hair,” Kyla told the Sydenham Current.
Beautiful Lengths is a partnership between Pantene and the Canadian Cancer Society.
The role of Pantene is to help women grow long, strong, beautiful hair and to provide the funds to turn this hair into free, real-hair wigs for women with cancer.
So far, Pantene has donated 24,000 free real-hair wigs to wig banks across North America, which distribute wigs to cancer patients.
To see if you are eligible to receive a free wig or if there are wigs available in your area, call the Canadian Cancer Society’s Wig Bank Line at 1-888-939-3333.
