ROBERTSDALE, JULY 28 - A hair raising experience Friday for a 6-year-old girl in Robertsdale, as she loses her locks to help children all across the country.
WHEN DANIELLE MILLER HEADS BACK to school this fall, her classmates will notice something different about her. She had almost a foot of hair cut off Friday, and believe it or not, the hairdresser was more nervous Danielle. She said, “It’s a shock for a girl, especially when they grow their hair, and they’ve never had it cut. You worry about how they’re gonna react.”
Danielle’s reaction was nothing but joy. The 11 inches of beautiful blonde hair she lost to the barber’s shears will help make wigs for children with medical hair loss. Danielle and her family have been preparing for this day for three years.
Her mother, Tina Miller, said, “I think her daddy’s upset the most because he doesn’t want to see her cut it, but it is gonna be easier, because the tangles, I don’t think, will be as bad. It’s hard to keep up, it’ll be easier to get ready for school in the mornings.”
“Locks of Love” is a non-profit organization that provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children who loose their hair because of a medical condition. Officials say it takes a lot of hair to make a wig, but the children Danielle helps will certainly love her kindness and generosity.
