It is wonderful. I hope they went a step further and the ones who cut off really long hair donated their hair to locks of love or another organization that accepts hair to be made into wigs for cancer patients.

I am sure that the person who wrote that comment did not mean it to be hurtful. As a matter of fact, I would be very surprised if the hair was not donated. It is a simple matter of cutting a ponytail off before the rest of the hair was shaved.

What these kids did was wonderful and selfless. Even if the hair was not donated, it does not diminish the act.

However it does make sense that when cutting off hair to support cancer research, any usable hair would be donated.

why did you say something like that? This person did not mean anything by it only it would be nice to donate the hair, Why are you so ready and willing to jump at someone. You owe that person an apology or you ought to read the comment again and then apologize. You were the only negative mean spirited comment on here in an otherwise heartwarming story and related posts

Do you understand what you read? I am very sorry about your little girl but you are very angry and maybe I would be in the same situation but you are lashing out angrily and I truly believe you are lucky to be in this country. Am I getting warm as I gather that from your writing. To make a statement about that other poster having to get a heart is ridiculous, nothing offense was said. And to make a statement that Juan McCain doesn't care about kids with cancer, is over the line. Cool off, reread the post and calm down

Monster??? Don't you think that's kind of harsh? Maybe you drank a few too many Monsters or Red Bulls or something. Easy on the juice boy!
