Community Spirit--Katharine Warner

When a loved one is diagnosed with a terminal disease like cancer, it affects the entire family, especially the children. One little girl reached out to help her grandmother, making a difference in ways she never imagined. 

Her name is Katharine Warner. At the age of five, her hair had grown to the middle of her back. But then she got a major cut. "It's going to Locks of Love," she explained.

Locks of Love is an organization that makes wigs for cancer patients from donated hair. Katharine anxiously waited in the stylist's chair at Marigold's Salon to get the hair she's been growing for the last two years to donate to her grandmother.

Her mother Caroline told us, "Turns out the relative has very dark hair and it wouldn't have worked, so she decided to donate it to cancer patients. Specifically kids."

So in moments, her long ponytail went down in history. For her generous gift straight from the heart, little Katharine Warner is part of the WTOC Community Spirit.

Katharine donated ten inches of her hair to Locks of Love.
