Felix Tremblay wants to provide a wig for a child who has lost their hair due to medical issues

Nine-year-old Felix Tremblay is on a mission — he wants to supply a wig for a child who has lost their hair.

Tremblay has been growing his hair out for a whole year with the idea of donating it to Locks of Love — a non-profit that makes custom hair replacement systems for children who have lost their hair due to medical conditions.

But Tremblay is going one step further — he is also trying to raise $1800 to dontate to another charity — Wigs for Kids — the amount needed to make one child’s hair replacement dreams come true.

“I really wanted to see one kid get a wig for free,” said Tremblay.

The Facebook fundraiser has already raised $650.

“I’m really proud of that because it’s a good cause,” said Tremblay.

Felix was first inspired to grow and donate his hair when he witnessed a friend of the family lose her hair during cancer treatments.

To donate go to “Felix’s fundraiser for Wigs For Kids” on Facebook.
