Thomas Moore, an 8-year-old boy from Maryland, saw his mom watching a Facebook video about a girl who lost her hair because of cancer. That had a strong impact on him and he eventually decided to do something for cancer-stricken kids. He started a project where he would grow his hair for the benefit of kids who lost theirs because of chemotherapy.
