HAIR FOR LOCKS OF LOVE

Diana Brown donated a grand lock of hair for the Locks of Love campaign. Patricia Lynn Laas cut the 13 inch lock and, moi, Julie Hopkins, photographed the event.  

"WHAT IS LOCKS OF LOVE?

Locks of Love is a public non-profit organization that provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children in the United States and Canada under age 21 suffering from long-term medical hair loss from any diagnosis. We meet a unique need for children by using donated hair to create the highest quality hair prosthetics. Most of the children helped by Locks of Love have lost their hair due to a medical condition called alopecia areata, which has no known cause or cure. The prostheses we provide help to restore their self-esteem and their confidence, enabling them to face the world and their peers."
