A month before Lily’s 10th birthday, her doctor approached the father-daughter duo with great news. Lily had beaten her sickness, when she went home for good that night,
her dad threw a party and invited everyone she knew. However, her happiness was not to last...
A girl she made friends with at the hospital was clinging onto her last breaths. When Lily and her dad went to say goodbye, she was shocked to see how much Jenny had deteriorated.
“She didn’t have any hair, and she looked so sick.” Seeing herself in the mirror brought bittersweet memories. Her short hair reminded her of her own trauma. That was when Lily realized she wanted to help.
“I can’t do anything to save them, but I can make them look like themselves again.” - Lily Martin
She decided to grow her hair and donate it to other children who were battling this sickness. Her father searched for a way to make his daughter’s hair grow faster. One day, he stumbled upon a promising solution.
