Hair today...

November 10, 2010 - On a sunny fall day last week, Sarah Trumbore walked into Limelight Salon in downtown Lake Orion. A short while later, she walked out feeling much lighter up top.

After growing her hair nearly to her waist, Trumbore made a donation toWigs 4 Kids.

The Michigan-based non-profit organization reaches out to kids and young adults with hair loss from cancer treatment, as well as other appearance related challenges that cause hair loss: Alopecia, trichotillomania, lupus, hydrocephalus, burns and other disorders and recently donated her hair to this organization.

"One of my best friends has trichotillomania and I know there are times when she feels like an outcast," said Trumbore, a freshman at Lake Orion High School.

"There are plenty of things to worry about in high school and when she has her wig, it's one less thing for her to have to think about. I wanted to help other kids in similar situations."

Tara Bruce, a stylist at the salon, gave Sarah new haircut and sent her off knowing the 12-inch pony tail will make a difference in another person's life.
