Nurses Cutting Hair for Cancer Patients

Posted:
QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -

Needing a haircut? If your locks are long enough, a local group of nurses is asking you to consider donating it.

The Blessing-Rieman College of Nursing faculty members are organizing "The Cut" to help the Pantene Beautiful Lengths Project make free, real hair wigs for cancer patients.

Organizer Autumn Voss says that right now they have just over thirty volunteers and are always looking for more. Hair must be at least eight inches, and cannot be bleached, dyed or chemically treated.

Voss says, losing her mother to cancer, she's happy to help get wigs to those who need them. "It just gives them a multitude of wigs to choose from - so the different varieties of hair, the colors, it just gives them a variety. And the more hair we send off, the more wigs they can make," she said.

The hair cutting will take place on April 4th at Studio 835. If you want more information, contact Voss at 228-5520.
