Teen Suspended from School Over Good Deed

Teen Suspended from School Over Good Deed

And it's not because she wants her son to have more fashion freedom; it's because she wants him to be able to complete the good deed he's set his heart on. J.T. is 17 and a leukemia survivor, and he's growing his hair so that he can donate it to another child who has lost hair as a result of cancer treatment.

J.T. has promised to cut his hair as soon as it's long enough to donate to Locks of Love, a non-profit which provides confidence boosts to kids fighting cancer by giving them realistic-looking hairpieces.
