Individuals teased him for resembling a young lady, however 8-year-old Christian McPhilamy had long blonde hair for a justifiable reason.
Christian, of Melbourne, Fla., had grown his hair out for over two years to give to kids who had lost theirs, Today reports. He recently got it trim and delivered four 10-inch-long segments that he sent to the not-for-profit Children with Hair Loss.
As his hair got longer throughout the years, Christian was regularly teased by schoolmates, confused for a young lady or advised that he expected to trim his hair. “Christian has such a gigantic heart,” his mother, Deeanna Thomas, told Today. “I don’t even know whether there are words to portray how glad I am of him.”
