This Girl of the Moment Donated her Hair to Cancer Research – 8 Times!
Olivia, or as she’s known on Miss O and Friends “Treehugger14”, has been writing for the blog since she was 14 years old. Now, 4 years later, she posts a few articles a week generally in the Girls Care section of the scoop.
Since she was 10 years old she has grown out her hair and donated the braids to an organization called Angel Hair that “…provides wigs and hair loss solutions to financially disadvantaged children in Canada who have lost their hair due to a medical condition or treatment.”
Because her hair is so thick and curly she is able to donate two braids each time; meaning that even though she’s only cut her hair four times she managed to donate 8 braids!
“Sometimes it can be difficult adjusting from having really long hair to all of a sudden having really short hair,” she said, “it’s weird when one morning you spend an hour detangling your curls only to spend less than five minutes the day after you cut it.”
On top of growing out her hair she enjoys reading, spending countless hours at the arena watching her brothers play hockey and finding ways to beat the frigid temperatures of Southern Ontario. She plans to study journalism in Montreal, Quebec come September but in the meantime you can check her out on the blog at @Treehugger14.
