Graaff-Reinet Advertiser - - Letters | Briewe -

Three litt­le big-he­ar­ted gi­rls, An­ni­ë­ka Lar­son (4), Gra­ce Kemp (9) and Ca­te Co­chra­ne (8) re­cent­ly de­ci­ded they would cut t­heir long hair and do­na­te it to can­cer pa­tients.

Whi­le so­me young gi­rls would cry at the thoug­ht of lo­sing t­heir long hair, the­se three did it with a s­mi­le on t­heir fa­ce.

The gi­rls, who all re­si­de in Graaff-rei­net, had t­heir hair cut at a lo­cal sa­lon af­ter which the long locks we­re do­na­ted to the Graaff-rei­net Can­cer As­so­ci­a­ti­on, to ma­ke wigs for tho­se who ha­ve lost t­heir hair to the di­se­a­se.

"We are tre­men­dous­ly gra­te­ful for this do­na­ti­on," says Han­na­tjie Pie­ter­se of the Graaff-rei­net Can­cer As­so­ci­a­ti­on. "You should be very proud of your­sel­ves," she con­clu­ded.

Ca­te Co­chra­ne (8).
