14-year-old Lamar was a special girl whose smile would light up the room. The world lost her on March 3, 2023 after her brave battle with Leukemia.
She donated her hair in Abu Dhabi two years before she found out she was diagnosed with cancer.. so it is now our turn to donate our hair in her memory.
