Two barbers recently got a cancer patient all emotional with a very touching move.
As the story goes, the cancer patient, a 58-year-old lady known as Caroline Ross had gone to the barbershop to get her hair cut.
She reached the decision because her hair had grown thin and was even falling out after chemotherapy.

Ross stepped into Huntsman Barbers, in Blaby, Leicestershire for a shave and was given a treat of her lifetime.
The barber who was handling her started shaving her and along the way decided to shave his own hair to show support and solidarity.
Ross, who has been receiving treatment for bowel cancer for the second time in four years could not understand why the Barbershop owner, Andi Bica wanted to film the shaving session.
She was overwhelmed by emotions when she finally realised the barber was filming the whole thing because he wanted to capture the moment he was shaving his own hair.
Bica was joined by yet another barber who also cut his hair in a move that aimed at showing the lady that she is not fighting the ailment alone.
Ross could not believe her eyes and ended up clasping her hands over her mouth while shouting "No way''.
The barber, Bica then hugged Ross and planted a soft kiss on her forehead before assuring her that she will be alright.
To top it off, the barber informed the cancer patient that the shave was free and could not take even a cent from her.
Ross, who is a former chef and nightclub owner lauded the two barbers and noted they were like heroes to her.
She held that the two made her happy and thanked them for giving her the confidence to walk with pride.
Ross shared the video of the shaving session on Instagram and TikTok where it has been viewed over 500k times.
