Gift of love

Carly Olson.

Carly Olson.

Carly Olson of Rockford hasn’t cut her hair since she was four years old-until now. The former East Rockford Middle School student cut her long hair for Locks for Love. “My aunt had to have a wig while she was fighting cancer,” Carly said. Her aunt lost her fight with the disease. Carly’s cousin donated to Locks for Love last fall and Carly thought it was a great idea to do the same. She also wanted to surprise her classmates, who have only known her with very long hair. It takes ten ponytails to create one wig of real human hair.
