More 'real-life Rapunzels': These children chopped their hair to help other sick kids
Rapunzel is no longer one for the storybooks.
After reading about Charlie Tillotson, the "real-life Rapunzel" who chopped off her flowing blond hair to help kids with cancer, TODAY fans flooded our Facebook page with stories of children who have also donated their hair to help kids in need.
From a cancer survivor donating her own locks to a courageous little boy growing out his hair to give it to charity, here are the donation pictures we loved — all from our own TODAY viewers! Keep on inspiring us!
This little girl was diagnosed with cancer at 4 months old, but is now cancer-free and has donated her hair twice already!
