At just six years old Christian McPhilamy decided he was going to grow his hair long, the reason? because he wanted to donate his hair to make wigs for children being treated for cancer. His goal was to grow his locks of hair to 10-inches-long, but because of this he was often teased and made fun of at school.

Now 8 years old, McPhilamy told Florida Today “Some people tried to call me a girl,” and that it made him feel “not very good,” but that never made him lose sight of his goal to donate his hair to Children With Hair Loss.
