Unlike his peers, Joseph Kimsey doesn’t grow his hair long to look cool, but rather so he can donate it to kids who are battling cancer. “They need it more than me,” he said. “I’m sure it’s tough for them, when they are out in public.”
Joseph has had to deal with a lot to keep his hair long, including getting up early in the morning to shower before school and having people at school mistake him for a girl. But it was all worth it when he reached his goal.
When he finally cut his hair, Joseph donated it to Locks of Love. This is the second time Joseph has donated his hair for the cause; the first was when he was just nine years old. Now, it’s something Joseph would like to keep doing for as long as he can.
