The 8-year old Thomas Moore from Rockville, Maryland, proved that nothing is more pure than a child’s soul! And the story of his two-year commitment is melting the Internet…and quickly went viral.
Everything began when Thomas Moore saw his mother, Angie Pulos, watching a Facebook video on Kyssi Andrews, a girl who was battling cancer and had lost all of her hair to chemotherapy.
Pulos had then explained to her son what cancer was and how chemotherapy can cause hair to fall out. And at that moment Thomas got an incredible idea.
He decided to start growing out his own hair to help Kyssi and make her feel happy and also to donate it to a charity that makes wigs for children suffering from cancer.
So that’s what he did for over two long years. And as you can see from the pictures below, Thomas grew a significant amount of hair! In fact, by the time he was done with his heartwarming project, the kid had enough hair to make three wigs!
After he’d cut it all off, his aunt, 24-year-old Amber Ray, posted his story with a before-and-after photo on Twitter. And since then, he has became an internet sensation, and the photo has been shared more than 57k times and liked by more than 110k people who were as amazed by this kid as we are.
