TAIPEI, Taiwan — Around 100 students and teachers from Mackay Junior College of Medicine,
Nursing, and Management on Saturday joined a hair donation campaign for cancer patients, getting their long hair cut to be made into wigs, Central News Agency reported.
The hair donation campaign was started by the college’s military instructor, Wang Fang-hui (王芳蕙), who called for participants in a Facebook post.
“It’s beyond my expectation that so many students and teachers have responded enthusiastically to the campaign,” Wang said.
One student spoke of her nervous and complicated feelings toward cutting off her long hair.
“Originally, I expected my hair to be cut only a little shorter, but I feel very nice about being able to help cancer patients with the longer length of hair,” she said. [FULL STORY]
