Showing kindness for a friend in need

They met two years ago and today their friendship grew even closer. ten year old Kaylynn Belacastro sat infront of her entire fourth grade class at Eagle Rock Elementary school as another parent shaved her head.

 "When I found out she had cancer I didn't want her to be alone" Belacastro said.

Sponsoring her friend, Belacastro will donate eight inches of her hair to Locks of Love, a non-profit organization that provide hairpieces for children in need. A brave idea that made her friend Natalie happy.

Others have also showed their support for young Natalie Ortiz who diagnosed with leukemia recently. One of those people is her mother and father who sported similar bus-cuts to the assembly.

Much like the quote posted on the billboard sign outside the elementary school Dalai Lama says "Be kind whenever possible. It's always possible."
