Bellevue, NE- An 11-year-old boy donates his long red hair to cancer patients.
On Tuesday, Jacob Calhoun cut more than 9 inches of his hair to donate to Pantene's Beautiful Lengths Free Cancer Wig Program .
Jacob is a student at Rumsey Station Elementary in Papillion and says it took him two years to grow out his hair. His mother inspired him to grow it out.
"Because my mom had cancer and when I figured out that my hair might be able to do this, I got excited cause I wanted to help other people that have been through this," said Jacob Calhoun.
Jacob plans to grow out his hair a few more times for the same cause.
