Hair Cut for Cancer Event at Immaculate Conception

Immaculate Conception Catholic Elementary School student Dennica Hallett can't quite believe that her hair has been cut. Hallett had her hair cut in front of her school to donate it to make wigs for people who have lost their hair due to cancer treatment.

September 26, 2012 - On Monday, September 24th, 2012 Louisa Bianchin, principal of Immaculate Conception Catholic Elementary School kicked off the Student of the Month assembly with something special. Grade four student, Dennica Hallett, had her hair cut in front of the whole school in order to donate it to make wigs for people who have lost their hair as a result of cancer treatments. Brenda Morrow, Dennica’s aunt was the hair stylist on hand who prepared and cut her hair for donation.

"It takes approximately 12 donations of unprocessed hair and costs about $1,200.00 to craft a single hand-sewn wig for a child" ( for Cancer Fundraiser).

Bianchin expressed her gratitude to Dennica in front of the school community. “We are so proud of Dennica's kindness and compassion for others; the staff and students at Immaculate Conception School would like to support Dennica and have raised additional revenue for the Canadian Cancer Society. As of today, we have raised $700 to donate to the Canadian Cancer Society”

Patricia Clizia from Canadian Cancer Society was on hand to accept the donation from the school. Clizia echoed Bianchin’s comments, and thanked both Dennica as well as the other students for their generosity. “We are so pleased that our young students at Immaculate Conception School are reaching out to others and "Joining together in the fight againstt cancer".
