Local donates to Locks of Love in honor of cancer awareness

Amanda Friedeck cuts 13 inches of her hair to donate to Lock of Love.

Growing her hair out for over two years Jim Wells County local, Amanda Sue Friedeck wanted to donate to a great cause to help the cancer community.

Learning about Locks of Love and it being October (Breast Cancer Awareness Month) it was a perfect time for an act of kindness.

On Wednesday, Oct. 7 Friedeck chopped off 13 inches of her own hair to submit in hopes to help create a wig for individuals.

Friedeck discusses how she always wanted to do this project and is blessed to help someone dealing with cancer or other illnesses. Being an advocate for the community Friedeck feels it is important to help others going through a rough time when you can. This kind donation could help cancer patients know they are never alone, and that someone cares about them.
