Highland Mills resident Rachel Kogan, age seven, recently donated 10 inches of her hair to Locks of Love. Her mother Michele said Rachel suffers from several auto-immune disorders and understands how difficult life can be when she’s sick, But Rachel also understands her conditions are manageable with frequent doctor visits, blood tests, medication and a gluten free diet. When she heard that there are children who are suffering from cancer and were losing their hair, she wanted to help, telling her mother, “My hair will grow back, but theirs may not... I want to give them my hair to make them feel better.” Her hair was cut at Soho Salon in Monroe.
