Lauren LaRay cancer wigs

Like many girls her age, Lauren LaRay could spend her free time playing in her hair or cutting Barbie a fly bob (oh, I’m the only one that did that, huh?), but instead, she’s using her hairstyling skills for a bigger mission: making wigs for little girls with cancer.

“My best friend’s little sister has cancer and I just felt bad for her,” said 8-year-old Lauren in a recent KSNV News 3 segment.

**May 4, 2016 Update**: It’s official! May 4th has been named Lauren LaRay Day In North Las Vegas! The Mayor made an official announcment and Lauren couldn’t be happier!
