A junior high school student’s mission is to give confidence to children affected by medical hair loss. Luis Palomino grew his hair and donated it to “Wigs for Kids”.
Palomino hasn’t had a haircut for almost two years. “Sometimes my hair sticks out like a chair, but I don’t care,” he said.
All this will be donated to “Wigs for Kids”. “When I first saw childless kids, I was worried about them. I worry about how people treat them. That’s what Palomino said. “And I don’t want people to do this to others. behave.”
Eric Kelly was a fifth grade teacher last year at Bonita Springs Elementary School in Lewis. “Lewis is the type of kid who always wants to do the right thing, and has beautiful hair,” Kelly said. “When I first met him, I was like, ‘Whoa, who’s this little guy with big hair?’ And I talked to him a little bit, and he told me what his plan was. I thought, “Wow, what a selfless act.”
Lewis and his family set foot on the Great Clips along Bonita Beach Road on Saturday afternoon. Just seconds later, here was the moment Lewis was waiting for.
“I feel good. I don’t know what to do now, but I regrow my hair,” Palomino said. “So I can donate my hair over and over again.”
He also wants his story to encourage other children to donate to legitimate causes. “I want them to do what I did, and I don’t want them to be ashamed [what] Others say of him,” Lewis said.
To donate “Wigs for Kids,” Lewis had to send her hair in Ziploc bags. WigsforKids provides free support for children who have lost their hair due to chemotherapy, radiation, burns or other medical problems. to the child’s family.
