RENO — Desert Heights Elementary second grade student Ann Matya last week donated her long, blonde hair to nonprofit Locks of Love to help disadvantaged children who are dealing with hair loss from long-term medical conditions.

Ann visited Rumors Salon at 1420 Holcomb Ave., suite 101 in Reno to make her donation to Locks of Love and have her hair styled.

Ann was inspired to donate her hair a few years ago when she saw a television show about a girl who had cancer and lost her hair during the course of her treatment.

When Ann found out her brother’s fourth-grade teacher was diagnosed with cancer, she became determined to grow out her hair to Locks of Love’s 10-inch length requirement so she could donate it to the organization that creates hairpieces for children or adults in need.
