Freshman Loretta Lee battled cancer in middle school and and won, and she knew she wanted to do something to help. Her teacher Jennifer Kivela told her about the charity Wigs for Kids, a group that collects hair and makes hair replacements for kids suffering from hair loss due to cancer, burns or other causes.
“I think she’s a beautiful young lady with a big heart, “ said Kivela. “She’s a great example of what it means to be an Everett Viking.”
Reflections Hair Design on Pennsylvanie Ave. donated the hair cut, and trimmed 13 inches from Loretta’s hair.
Loretta, who was bald just a couple of year ago due to treatment for Leukemia, said she is glad she had so much of her hair to give a good cause.
“I don’t miss my hair,” she said. “I’m glad someone else has it.”
She also said that, sometime in the future, she would do it again.
