PARSIPPANY — A Littleton School fifth grader has cut and donated her hair to benefit children with hair loss– for the third time.
Janey Smith, 11, has donated her hair three times in just eleven years, an impressive feat considering that’s how old she is. That’s about 30 inches of hair.
This time she donated her hair to Children With Hair Loss, a charity that makes wigs for children with medical conditions that cause hair loss. In 2016, the organization made wigs for 528 children.
Children With Hair Loss is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that provides human hair replacements at no cost to children and young adults facing medically-related hair loss.
When a child’s hair is lost due to Cancer treatments, Alopecia, Trichotillomania, Burns, etc., the painful effects are far deeper than just cosmetic. Each year, the number of children requesting our hair replacements increases and with support, they can continue to increase the number of children they are able to help in the future.
