you got a friend

Kid shaves his head so his friend with cancer won't feel alone

Can’t cope.

THERE’S PLAIN OLD friendship, and then there are the friendships you have as a kid.

6-year-old Zac Gossage was diagnosed last year with a type of fast growing cancer of the white blood cells, acute lymphoblastic leukemia.


However, he rarely missed school, looking forward to playing with his best buddy Vincent Butterfield every day at lunch time.

The pair are inseparable, and Vincent began to get curious about his friend’s illness.


One day he showed up to school wearing a stocking cap, telling the boys’ teacher that he had a ‘surprise’ for Zac. Pulling off the cap, he revealed that he had shaved his head “to make Zac feel like he’s not the only one without any hair.”


But that’s not all. When little Vincent learned that treatment was expensive, he started selling scarves for $15, raising $200 to go towards Zac’s treatment.


Seriously, it’s far too early to be chopping onions.
