Nine-year-old Aneeqa Kanji has been growing her hair for a long time. But the Adams Road Elementary student recently got a lot of it cut off so she could donate her hair to a charity that makes wigs for people who are undergoing treatment for cancer. She sees her gesture as a way to honour her grandmother, who was diagnosed with breast cancer.
