PHARR, Texas – Local high school students cutting their hair to donate to cancer patients. Nearly two dozen girls at PSJA Memorial Early College High School, cut eight inches of their hair to help make wigs for those who have lost their hair due to cancer.

Kimberly Hess, cancer survivor, “It’s something we really appreciate when we’re going through our treatment, something that helps us feel normal. We always feel like people are starring at you when we’re in public so see these young girls not care about their image and decide to do something selfless and cut their hair is just really, really amazing.”

Cancer patients in the Valley can get free wigs and head scarf’s at the American Cancer Society in McAllen located at 1200 east Ridge Road Suite 1.
