Eight-Year-Old Boy Grows Hair to Help Kids with Cancer

Christian McPhilamy let his hair grow for a very special cause.

At the tender age of six, Christian McPhilamy started growing his hair. Adults asked him to cut it, the kids at school bullied him, but he just kept growing it. Why? To help children with cancer. Inspired by a St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital advertisement he saw on TV, he made a very special goal—to grow his hair ten inches to make wigs for children being treated for cancer.
