Here are a group of real life Rapunzels who chopped their hair off to help cancer patients.

Brave Little Girls

This little princess is one of many who have been selfless enough to sacrifice their lovely hair to help cancer patients.

They chopped off their manes and donated them to the Little Princess Trust, a children’s cancer charity, that helps make real-hair wigs for young cancer patients across the U.K. and Ireland.

The Little Princess Trust also helps children with other conditions that leave them with hair loss.

Here are some brave little princesses helping less fortunate kids with their acts of selflessness:

According to the latest available statistics for childhood cancer in U.K., about 1,574 children were diagnosed with cancer every year between 2009-2011. In the U.S. there are approximately 13,400 children between 0- 19 years who have some form of cancer and it is estimated that about 10,450 children under the age of 15 will be diagnosed with cancer in 2014.

Keeping these staggering numbers in mind, significant resources are being put towards research to find a cure for this deadly disease.

Yet, the social stigma attached with hair loss caused by chemotherapy is something these young warriors are joining forces to not have anyone suffer through.

So three cheers for these young Rapunzels.
