Would you let your little girl cut and donate her hair to cancer patients? That’s exactly what four-year-old Emily James from Canada was allowed to do.

In a recent blogpost Emily’s mom, Amy, tells how her little girl was born with an amazingly full head of hair. “The nurse at the hospital snuck her down to the nurses’ station to show the others because they didn’t believe her as she tried to describe [Emily’s] thick, full head of dark hair with frosted blonde tips,” she writes.

At the age of three, the tot needed a haircut and her parents explained that she could donate her hair to a cancer organisation. She agreed, with one condition: her doll’s hair had to be cut too.

Watch Emily (and Dolly) tell her story and get a haircut. Also read Amy James’ blogpost here.
