A shave to remember!

 

before and after

Nicole Michiels raised over $1700 for her cousin Kyle's dental costs. In September 2012, Kyle was diagnosed with leukemia. After undergoing treatment for cancer, he needed 30 fillings in order to fix his teeth. She promised to not only shave her head, but bic it if she surpassed her $1000 goal! Check out the video below to see the process and her children's priceless reactions!

In total, Nicole donated 6 braids ranging from 12-15 inches in length to Locks of Love. You can still help and donate here.
