Little boy grows his hair ten inches for the most heartwarming reason ever
Meet this little boy Tyler Boone from Atlanta Georgia. Tyler is just 10 years old but with a heart of gold. Take a good look at Tyler’s best friend Gabby Ruiz of Riverview Florida. Gabby isn’t bald because she chooses to be. It’s because she suffers from a medical condition.
Tyler has done the most awesome thing for Gabby. The little boy grew his hair just so that he could donate it to her.
1 Gabby suffers from a strange disease
Gabby developed the medical condition called Alopecia areata when she was 4 years old. The condition is an autoimmune skin disease that causes its victim to lose hair. Wigs of course are costly so Gabby’s mom buys her headbands or hats to make her feel comfortable.
2 Tyler and Gabby’s first meeting
Tyler met Gabby three years ago. When he noticed that the girl was very shy he wondered why. When Gabby’s mom told him of her condition, he asked her what he could do to make Gabby feel better. This was revealed by his dad Jason Boone.
3 Tyler makes a kindhearted decision
Finally when Tyler understood that gabby couldn’t grow her own hair, the beautiful and kind hearted little boy grew his own hair for her. It took him two long years after which he had grown his hair to shoulder length which measured all of 10 inches. This was just enough for the non profit NGO “Children with hair loss’ to produce a wig.
4 Gabby’s mom was blown away
The day Tyler had his locks cut, it was gabby who commenced the cutting and felt it was an honor for her to do so. Said Tyler’s dad ‘Tyler is such a generous kid,” his dad said. “We try to raise him with the message that you put other people first.”
Gabby’s mom was simply blown away by the generosity of the little fourth grader. It’s a sweet thing that a kid at his age would want to do that for a friend,” she said. “To see Gabby smile after going through all of this has been really sweet.”
5 We should learn something from Tyler
Children with hair loss now have Tyler’s hair and will fashion a wig for Gabby who will of course be wearing it proudly. The little boy grew his own hair for a friend and perhaps has a thing or two to teach adults about human compassion and kindness.
