Local Girl Scouts Cut Off Hair for Worthy Cause
Their friend is battling leukemia, so a group of girls scouts made one big sweeping gesture Monday to help her and others like her fighting for their lives.
The Girl Scouts of Wisconsin Southeast, spend the day at Impressions Salon in Mequon.
More than 20 of them cut their hair to make wigs for children facing an illness or treatment for an illness that causes hair loss.
"Ii felt bad for Ayla that she had leukemia," explained Tessa Kunsuhke. "I just felt really bad."
The owner of Impressions Salon, Kitty Tierney, says she'll always give free haircuts to people wanting to donate their hair.
"I'm always thankful that I didn't have to go through anything like this with my children," Tierney told CBS 58 News. "They're both very healthy. I look at the struggles they've had and I think it's just hair. We can help out it'll be a fun day."
