This is no ordinary back to school haircut. Kellen Blankenship has been growing his hair out for 2 years for this moment – to chop it all off in order to help a child who has lost his/her hair in the fight against cancer. Mike Cihla of WTOC came out to cover the story and mentioned that they have featured similar stories but never with a boy.
Kellen was that boy today! A boy who has rocked these curls through baseball practices, saxophone productions, living room ninja moves, trips to the beach, and so much more. You don’t have to talk with this kid for too long before finding out that he’s no ordinary kid. He is much like his hair appears – wild, lively, bold, and passionate! But most of all I think it’s important to feature his BIG heart. Thanks for what you did today Kellen – you’ve inpsired us all to focus on what’s truly important and to look beyond ourselves to help someone in need.
