Every weekday Shawn Patrick sheds some light on some good news with His Good Vibes Story. Here is today's...
Mila Garza has been growing her hair out since she was born, so her parents were surprised when she told them she wanted to cut it all off. The Texas six-year-old decided she wanted to donate her hair to help someone fighting cancer. “It’s a special moment, she actually came up to us and said that she wanted to do this, to donate her hair,” says Mila’s father, Robert Garza. “You don’t expect a six year old to make a decision like that.”
Petra Clary, owner of Petra Hair Design in Lubbock, who took care of Mila’s donation says hair loss can greatly affect a person’s confidence, and a wig can really help. “It brings a sense of normalcy,” Petra says. “It really makes you feel like a human again. You don’t see the sickness.”
Mila encourages others to donate their hair to help someone with hair loss, “You should donate your hair, because you have a lot.”
