nuBest Client Donates Hair for Cancer Wigs
National Breast Cancer Awareness Month is coming to an end.
Adorable nuBest client, Spyrithoula Xenophontos, fifth grader at Shelter Rock Elementary School, donated 13 inches of her hair to the Pantene Beautiful Lengths program, a partnership between the hair-care company and the American Cancer Society, that supplies wigs from real human hair to women who have lost their hair during cancer treatments.
Spyrithoula had 11 inches of her hair cut - longer than the 8-10 inches usually cut for girls supporting the program - as an additional two inches were cut at the end of the haircut to even out her new look.
Pantene has donated more than 24,000 free real-hair wigs to American Cancer Society wig banks throughout the country, according to the company’s official Web site.
