When he was just six years old, Christian McPhilamy saw an advert on the television for St Jude Children's Research Hospital. He decided then and there to grow his hair long, so he could donate it to Children With Hair Loss. As his hair grew longer, Christian, from Florida, began to be teased and taunted about his locks by other children, something that made him feel "not very good" he told Florida Today. "Some people tried to call me a girl." Despite the teasing going on for two and a half years, Christian never once considered cutting off his hair. Not until it reached the 10 inch length required for him to be able to donate it to be made into wigs for children suffering from cancer. What a legend!
