Noah, aged 11, has gone to extraordinary lengths to help his little sister Ellerie. Five year old  Ellerie suffers from trichotillomania, a disorder characterised by recurrent hair pulling. Ellerie has benefited from help from The Little Princess Trust, who provide human hair wigs to children that experience hair loss due to cancer and other conditions, with the aim to help promote their self esteem and sense of well being. The charity welcomes hair donations of ponytails 12 inches or longer.

Noah says, “I have learned, as a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, to always look for ways that I can help others. The charity helped my little sister feel so happy. I wanted to help them in their work, so they can continue putting a smile on other children’s faces too.”

Noah started to grow his hair over 2 years ago, with the idea of donating it as soon as he could. Along with having his hair cut, he has managed to raise over £300 for the Trust.

Ellerie is delighted with her big brother's sacrifice and excitedly says, “I loved Noah’s long hair, but I love that he gave it to be made into a wig, for a little girl or boy, who doesn’t have any hair of their own anymore.”
