Morgan is 5 years old and has made a very inspiring decision to help make a difference by cutting and donating her beautiful long hair to be made into a wig for a child who has lost their hair due to a medical condition.
She will be cutting off her beautiful long locks on Saturday 14th March 2020 by the gorgeous girls at Hair by Two Sisters in Greensborough.
This decision has been an on and off again topic since mid-last year. Having been to the Children’s Cancer Centre at The Royal Children’s Hospital Melbourne back in June 2019, Cooper and Morgan were curious about the other children at the centre, wondering why they had no hair. Explaining as best I could to them the reason, they understood and the subject of Morgan donating her hair arose.
After many months of appointments and seeing different specialists at The Royal Children’s Hospital last year, Cooper (6 years old) has been diagnosed with ‘Nodular Lymphocyte Predominant Hodgkin Lymphoma’ (NLPHL).
A rare, slow-growing, curable subset of Hodgkin Lymphoma.
Treatment is chemotherapy, which has just started and with one of the side effects being that Cooper may or may not lose his hair, Morgan’s inspiring decision is in honor of her big brother.
Wigs cost families up to $6,000, lasting 1-2 years, meaning families can spend tens of thousands of dollars on the purchase of wigs throughout a child’s youth.
By making a donation to Variety - the Children's Charity, you can help provide a wig or other vital equipment to a child in need.
Thank you for helping kids in need and from the bottom of my heart thank you so much for supporting Morgan and Cooper!
