He Was Bullied and Teased for 2 Years for Helping Kids He’s Never Met. You’ll Be Proud of Him.

Some children bullied and teased a Florida boy for growing his hair long but he wasn’t deterred. Eight-year-old Christian McPhilamy saw a commercial in late 2012 that featured children with cancer being treated at St-Jude’s Children Research Hospital. He noticed many children lost their hair due to treatments and he wanted to find a way to help out.

Seeing his determination to help, his mother, Deeanna Thomas, suggested that he grow his hair and donate it to charity. While he was growing his hair long, he endured criticism from his friends, coaches and even family members but many of them apologized once they realized why he was doing it.

Eight-year-old Christian McPhilamy wanted to help children with cancer who lost their hair during cancer treatments.

He grew out his hair and was undeterred even when his friends called him a girl or when other people would tease or bully him because of his long hair.

After 2 years, his hair was long enough to donate and he feels great that other kids will be happy too.

Because of his loving heart, his family donated four 10-inch sections of his hair it to Children With Hair Loss, a charity that creates hairpieces for children who lost their hair due to cancer or burns.

H/t: Today

Christine Wong, COO of Children With Hair Loss was also impressed by his determination to help. What made his donation even more special is that only 1 in every 50 donations are from young boys.

Please share this beautiful deed from Christian with your friends and family.
