Márquez donates hair to Locks of Love PDF Print E-mail
Written by Holyoke Enterprise   



Andrea Márquez recently had 11 1/2 inches of her hair cut off so she
could donate it to Locks of Love. The preschooler wanted to donate
after seeing her older sister Lali chop off 10 inches earlier this year
and donate to the organization.

Locks of Love is a public nonprofit organization that provides hairpieces
to financially disadvantaged children in the United States and Canada
under age 18 who are suffering from long-term medical hair loss from
any diagnosis. The organization meets a unique need for children by
using donated hair to create the highest quality hair prosthetics. The
hairpieces they provide help restore children’s self-esteem and
confidence, enabling them to face the world and their peers.

Márquez is the daughter of Rigoberto and Cecilia Márquez.
