“SHE is so brave and I am so proud of her,” says Nisha Singh, the mother of nine-year-old K-Reece from Northdale, who cut her hair and donated it to CANSA in honour of her grandfather, who died this year from prostate cancer.

Singh said her daughter, who is in Grade 4 at Deccan Road Primary School, decided last Monday that she wanted to cut her hair and donate it.

She said she was surprised when she heard this because K-Reece loves her hair and has only cut it once before, when she was five.

“She mentioned this before, but she was not serious. On Monday she told me what she wanted to do it, so we went to the salon on Tuesday, where she cut her hair and then donated 48cm of it.

“She knows everything about cancer because she reads a lot. When we went for the cut she was excited because she knew she would bring change to someone’s life by donating it.

“She is so passionate about helping other people.”

Singh said it is important for people to do the little they can to help those in need.
