When Danielle Mills from Atlanta, GA got engaged, she started growing out her hair for the big day on June 12, 2011. She realized how lucky she was to be able to grow her hair long, and planned to cut it after the wedding and give it to those who weren’t as lucky.
Growing up, Danielle lost her aunt, her grandmother and a friend to cancer. She never got to meet her grandfather, who also died of cancer before she was born.
She decided to use this hair cut as a way to try and raise funds for the American Cancer Society (to find out more about her fundraising efforts, visit her site here). On Thanksgiving, Danielle cut off 12 inches of hair. She is looking forward to growing it out, so that she can make the cut again!
