Brittany and Danielle Weiss are shown after making their hair donations.
Brittany, 16, and Danielle, 14, Weiss recently donated 8 and 9 respective inches of their hair to Pantene Beautiful Lengths.
According to their mother, Dawn Weiss, the sisters decided dto cut and donate their hair to help those who lost their hair due to illness. Beautiful Lengths uses the donated hair to make wigs.
They were inspired by several people they know who have been battling cancer: Janice Rogers — their first-grade teacher, Stephanie Hosford and Janet Jacobs — their cousins and Vicki Schoreder, all who have won their battles; also for Denise Lassiter and Geraldine Czarkowski who are still receiving treatments.
