Keeping a promise: A touching story behind hair donation
Thanh Vy discovered the hair donation network for breast cancer patients through a friend, but little did she know that it would all stem from a personal story that unfolded more than four years ago.
Thanh Vy shared that she used to have a close sister who battle leukemia. She had promised to donate her hair to her sister when it grew long. However, her sister couldn’t wait, so “I kept nurturing my hair until now and decided to donate it on April 19, 2023. It marks the 4th anniversary of her passing.”
