10-year-old Moore, before his hair became a long beautiful mane, saw his mom,SocueSoflien,watching KyssiAndrews on Facebook.
Kyssi Andrewsis ayoung girl who lost all of her hair due to chemotherapy treatments for her cancer diagnosis.
Thomas asked his mom why she lost her hair and she started to explain to him the process of chemo, and journey through cancer, and what they can both do to your body.
Thomas’s immediate reaction was saying that he was going to grow his hair long so that he could give it toKyssi,and he did just that.
Here is not even the end result of all of his growing, he continued on after this and it became almost unmanageable according to his aunt!
In order to keep his hair in control, neat and clean, they put it into cornrows.
Still, just as handsome and selfless, he continues on with his journey to help others.
He kept growing his hair out until he finally thought it was enough to donate to those in need.
From short hair not leaving his head, to hair down past his shoulders, Thomas has proven that he can keep his word.
He did so much to make sure that this happened and that this hair was in great condition for whoever was going to get to use it, and his family probably did too.
I myself know that my hair is hard to manage, and it’s nowhere near as much as Thomas’.
Two entire years passed, and the day finally came that Thomas was ready to cut it off.
Hehad more than enough hair to help not one, but multiple people who lost their hair.
Unfortunately, the little girl that inspired him to do this amazing thing, has passed away.
But her legacy clearly lives on, and her inspiring Thomas, is a beautiful moment we can appreciate in her memory.
His amazing act of kindness has now gone viral, and a former NBA player, Derek Anderson decided to help give Thomas the real recognition he deserves. He is set to receivean ‘Act Of Kindness Award’ from the Stamina organization, run by Anderson.
He’ll be present, with his family, at Anderson’s gala on October 14th, and he will be given the award in front of everyone in attendance.
The transformation this adorable young boy went through for two entire years, in order to help others, is something that everyone can appreciate. He deserves this award coming to him, and much more.
If all kids were like Thomas Moore, the world might be a much simpler and happier place.
