10-year-old boy grows hair out for 2-years to help cancer patients

For two years, ten-year-old Thomas Moore skipped getting haircuts.

But unlike most kids his age – Thomas had a good reason behind his actions.

After watching a video on Facebook about a young girl who lost her hair while battling cancer, Thomas decided to take up the cause to help.

Two years and three wigs later – he joined us to talk about his story!


Thomas said he was searching online when he stumbled across the video of a young girl who lost her hair during a battle with cancer. His mother explained to him that cancer was a disease and that some treatments can make you lose your hair.

Mom said that even though Thomas has a very sensitive scale, he made it through two years.


Thomas is going into the 5th grade – and even after doing so much to help – he is thinking about starting the process again.

"I feel like I can make a bunch of people with cancer happy by going them my hair," Thomas told FOX 5's Maureen Umeh Monday when he visited #GoodDayDC.
