Two teenage sisters recently donated their long locks to be made into wigs for cancer patients undergoing treatments.
Hunain Khan, 13, and Raksheen Khan, 15, also raised $1,625 in support of the Canadian Cancer Society.
“The money raised by Hunain and Raksheen will fund Canada's most promising pediatric cancer research,” said a press release from the Canadian Cancer Society.
The sisters wanted to give back to their community by helping children undergoing cancer treatment, the press release added.
They feel blessed to have the opportunity to donate their hair and raise money for a great cause. The girls love their hair and want women undergoing cancer treatment to also feel beautiful and confident.
Hunian cut her hair in front of her Grade 8 class at Churchill Public School on Nov. 15, and Raksheen cut hers on Dec. 1 at the Canadian Cancer Society’s office.
“The family is very thankful for the support of Churchill Public School staff, who were very supportive of the girls’ fundraising efforts,” said the press release.
