(WSVN) - A teen gave back in a big way by donating his hair to cancer patients in need.
Air Force Academy student Kieran Moise cut off his 19-inch long afro over the weekend near Birmingham Alabama.
His goal was to provide cancer patients wigs made with his hair.
“I just don’t like haircuts and I haven’t gotten a haircut for maybe six years,” he said. “I’m going into the military and I didn’t want them to just cut it off and drop it on the floor. I wanted to give back because there are lots of people that need that help.”
Moise was inspired to donate his hair after losing a friend to cancer in the eighth grade.
