An 8-Year-Old From Utah Grew His Hair For Two Years—So That He Could Donate It All

"Mom, I don't want to do it." Most parents will recognize this statement from an 8-year-old. But Tate Morgan wasn't just saying no because he could. Tate was on a mission.


"I don't want to cut my hair," Tate continued, explaining to his mom that he wanted to "do something good with it."

Tate's mother Kassandra agreed; they wouldn't cut Tate's hair. So the 6-year-old grew his locks out for more than 2 years, so that eventually his pale blond mane fell well below his shoulders. At school, Tate got teased for his hairstyle, but he seemed for the most part unbothered by the attention. Perhaps that's because he knew he was doing this for a very meaningful reason.

At age 8, Tate was ready to cut his hair. Because the time had come to donate his long locks to a child with cancer, through an organization called Children With Hair Loss.

After the snip, Kassandra expressed just how impressed she was with her young son: "I'm speechless," she said. "I can't stop looking at him!"
