 Daughter Cuts Off Cancer Fighting Mother's Hair
A video of a little girl cutting her cancer-fighting mother's hair has becoming popular on YouTube.

Sara aged 44-years was diagnosed with breast cancer last September. She started losing her hair following chemotherapy treatment. Sara asked her 6-year old daughter Lola to cut her hair and produced a video, which shows the duo laughing and smiling as each lock falls into a ceramic bowl.

This 3-minute, slow motion film was meant to be an intimate family memento to help Lola and her five siblings come to terms with their mother's fight against breast cancer. However, their family members and friends were so touched by the footage that they decided to put it on YouTube to raise awareness about breast cancer. The family now hopes that the video will help raise money for cancer charities.
