Most little girls love their long beautiful hair, there's nothing like getting it all dolled up to look pretty. Unfortunately, cancer has ruined it for many of them who lose theirs to the dreadful illness. This is why thousands of people make the decision every day to donate their hair to help little girls feel and look pretty again.
In a touching twist, a thoughtful little boy has made the decision to donate his hair to the cause. Nine-year-old Reilly Stancombe from Essex in England had been growing his hair since he was only a little baby. In a Daily Mail article, his mother, Daisy Stancombe, explains that he had always had long hair as a baby.
As he grew older, he admired footballer Gareth Bale, who inspired him to grow his hair.
"He sort of had it shoulder length growing up as a toddler and as he got older he was inspired by football and he grew it and grew it and grew it and it ended up the two-foot (nearly 60cm) of hair he had," she said.

The decision to finally cut his hair after nine long years came after the length became "too much" for him. After his visit to a local barbershop, Reilly said that he "loved" his new haircut. He also said that he decided to donate his hair after he saw children who've lost theirs to cancer.
Aside from his hair donation, he has also raised funds for the girls at Little Princess Trust.
