Son Grew His Hair For 2 Years To Make A Wig For Mother Who Lost Her Hair Due To Brain Tumor

Arizona mother lost her hair while undergoing radiation treatment for a brain tumor, so her son grew out his hair and had it made into a $2,000 wig.

In 2022, Melanie Shaha, a 61-year-old mother of six had surgery to remove the tumor, which grew to be the size of a plum, according to “Today,” but in 2006, she underwent a second procedure after it returned. In 2017 when the tumor returned for the third time, she was prescribed radiation treatment.

“Not having hair, you stick out like a sore thumb and well-meaning people can say things that break your heart,” she told “Today.” “I don’t mind being sick but I mind looking sick. I’d rather blend in and not stand out at the store.”

According to “Today,” in 2018, Melanie’s 28-year-old son Matt made a joke that sparked an idea during a family lunch. “I said, ‘Why don’t I grow out my hair to make a wig for you?'” Matt told the outlet, adding that at the time, he grew out his hair because the university he attended had strict rules about hair length.

Although Melanie initially didn’t want to take her son up on his offer, he persisted and grew 12 inches of hair by March 2022, “Today” reported. KSAZ, a local news station in Phoenix, Arizona, reports that Matt grew his hair for two and a half years.

With the help of his coworkers, Matt chopped off his long locks that month, “Today” reported.

Then, they shipped the hair to Compassionate Creations in Newport Beach, California, where it was assembled into a hand-stitched wig, “Today reported.” KSAZ reports that the wig cost $2,000
