This amazing boy grows hair for two years to make a wig for his bald girl friend!

A ten year old boy decides to  grow hair for two years, just for the sweetest reason of making a nice wig for his girl friend, who was suffering from auto-immune baldness disorder.

Twelve year old Gabby Ruiz suffers from Alopecia and has no hair on her head and is completely bald.  She became a victim to this ailment when she was four years of age.

Alopecia is a type of hair loss that occurs when your immune system mistakenly attacks hair follicles and leads to baldness.


Gabby’s friend, Tyler Boone, after coming to know about the situation wanted to do something for her. He decided to grow his own hair for two long years to ensure his hair grows sufficiently long to make a nice proper wig for his friend. This shows how beautiful heart he has and how much he felt so close to his friend.


Finally  on December 29, last year, Tyler Boone got his twelve inches long hair locks cut from his friend’s ow hands, which would be used for making the new wig by the organization called “Children With Hair Loss.”

“She’s very quiet and to herself until she gets to know people,” Gabby’s mother, Emelia Ruiz told ABC News. “She’s been comfortable with herself regardless,[of her looks] but she’s at that age.”

“She’s about to be 13 and she wants something different. She’s excited to try [the wig].”

Tyler’s parents said they’re very proud of their son, what he’s done for Gabby and his “super-big heart.”

“This is Tyler’s personality and it’s not something we encouraged him to do,” Tyler’s dad Jason Boone told ABC News.

“They’ve been friends and Tyler has done some things [for Gabby] as acts of kindness.”
