Community Spirit--Katharine Warner

When a loved one is diagnosed with a terminal disease like cancer, it affects the entire family. One of the youngest members of a Savannah family is helping the adults deal with this especially difficult time.

Katharine Warner is reaching out to help her grandmother and she's making a difference in ways she and her family never imagined. At the age of five, her hair has grown to the middle of her back. But today, she's getting a major cut.

"It's going to Locks of Love," she said.

Locks of Love is an organization that makes wigs for cancer patients from donated hair. Katharine anxiously waits 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.  "But my hair wasn't the right color," she said.

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

So in moments, this 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.

By the way, her grandmother is getting stronger each day.
