Adorable Galway 4-year-old donating her hair to children with cancer

Roisin Smith wants to give her hair to Lucy O’Connor.

FOUR-YEAR-OLD Róisín Smith is cutting off her hair tomorrow after being inspired when she saw a picture of nine-year-old cancer patient Lucy O’Connor with no hair.

Róisín is from Galway and knows Lucy. She said:

I’m going to cut off my hair and give it to a girl who has no hair because she has bad medicine.

Her mother Caroline said, “When Róisín saw a picture of a little girl we know without hair because of a cancer diagnosis … she immediately offered to cut her hair to give to the little girl.

Róisín will have 9 inches cut off her ponytail tomorrow in Gort and her hair will be donated to the Little Princess Trust – a charity that makes wigs for children with cancer and other illnesses that cause hair loss.

She has also managed to raise almost €2,800 in sponsorship for BUMBLAnce on iDonate.

BUMBLAance is an ambulance for children which provides stress-reducing journeys in state-of-the-art, safe and fun vehicles.
