Once again Bloom is blown away by the generosity of children. Last week a very sweet and precocious little lady came in to donate her hair. After chatting with her and her mother we discovered that not only was donating her hair all her idea but she had grown her hair out just to cut it off! Very forward thinking for a five year old, don’t you agree?
Alex, our adorably generous new friend, has a very rare kidney condition called Bartter Syndrome. Thankfully she has been successfully treated. For the first six months after being diagnosed Alex had to spend a lot of time in and out of hospitals. During her stays she noticed that many of the other children did not have any hair. Once her mom explained the reason to her, she only had one question left.
“What can I do to help?”
So she decided to grow out her hair. Now, thanks to Justin, who did the honors, and to Alex’s enormous heart, she is looking cuter than ever and has proved to Bloom that great things often come in small packages.
Thank you Alex!
