6th Grader Goes to Beautiful Lengths to Help Cancer Patients

A special gift to women living with cancer.
At the end of this past summer, 6th grader Blynn donated her hair to Pantene’s Beautiful Lengths program. The program partners with the American and Canadian Cancer Societies to provide free, real-hair wigs to women living with cancer. Said Blynn, “We have family friends that we lost to breast cancer. I thought it would be nice for someone with cancer to have a real-hair wig.” She went to get her hair cut the week before school started. “The stylist divided my hair into two ponytails.” said Blynn. “Once the first one was cut, there was no going back!” “Only a few of my friends saw my haircut before school started, so the people in my class were pretty surprised on the first day of school,” she adds. “I really like my short hair, and I’m happy to have been able to help someone with cancer.”
Mason Preparatory School is committed to the education of the whole child in preparation for secondary education through the cultivation of respect, integrity, and personal responsibility within a nurturing environment that results in a productive citizen of a global community.
