This weekend, we featured Lucy Wonacott as our 7's HERO. She's just 7 years old, and in her short life, she's already donated her hair THREE times (10 inches of it each time!) to Locks of Love - an organization that makes wigs for people who have lost their hair to cancer. If you add that up, that's 30 inches of hair. That's a lot for such a little girl! She says she does it because she has the hair to give, and she wants other little girls with cancer to have hair too. How sweet is that?

While Lucy was having her hair cut this time around - little did she know that a breast cancer survivor was there at the salon at the very same time. She actually came up and thanked Lucy for her donation, and it was a very touching moment.

You can watch that here:
