Carolyn Bivens had recently finished her breast cancer treatment when she and her husband decided they were ready to adopt a dog. That’s when they rescued 13-pound Monster, a two-and-a-half-year old Havanese. Before long, the Bivens sensed that Monster might be destined for a more than being a family pet.
For two years, 7-year-old Vinny Desautels grew out his hair to help kids with cancer. "I want to help people so they don't have to go to the doctors to fight cancer." Thirteen inches of hair was gone with the snip of some scissors. "And then everyone got excited when mom cut the ponytails off. I was happy," Vinny said. He was happy to help, a moment of selfless service, asking for nothing in return.
