Smiles That Inspire: KhloeAugust 9, 2021
Patient Highlight: Khloe
Our young patients amaze us with so many courageous and cool things they’re doing for the community. Khloe especially stands out when we think of Smiles That Inspire.
In 2017 Khloe started donating her hair to Wigs for Kids, an organization that provides hair replacement systems and support for children who have lost their hair due to chemotherapy, radiation therapy, alopecia, trichotillomania, burns and other medical issues at no cost to children or their families.
“I have donated my hair twice. When I was younger I saw a video of a little girl who had lost her hair because she was sick,” said Khloe. “I wanted to send her my hair so she could have hair. I will continue to help kids like her who have lost their hair.”
It takes Khloe about three years to grow her hair out prior to donating. When she isn’t growing her hair out she is studying planets and space! She loves NASA, softball, and building LEGOS. She has dreams to be a scientist one day and we have no doubt that she can!
Thank you, Khloe, for teaching us how to give to those in need. Your smile and attitude are inspiring to all of us!
