Gianna . Amazingly Huge Hearted Girl!

Yesterday I had the honor of documenting Gianna Repetti, along with several of her classmates and teachers, as they cut and donated their hair to Pantene Beautiful Lengths. Pantene teams up with the American Cancer Society to make real hair wigs for women living with cancer.

Almost one year ago to the date, Gianna's little sister Angelina was diagnosed with neuroblastoma, which resulted in a massive tumor that had wrapped itself around her spine, as well as other areas in her body. This little girl has fought her way through several surgeries, chemotherapy, and countless other procedures. She is currently beating this disease and the effects it has placed on her physical health.

Gianna is the oldest Repetti sibling and as her mom puts it is a sensitive girl with a huge heart. This was shown by her wanting to do something for others who are battling cancer. She challenged her entire school to take place growing out and cutting their hair for the same cause. Many joined and the school honored those accepting the challenge with an assembly and celebration as they cut their hair.

The news was there to capture the day, and I came along to grab some shots as well. I am personally inspired by the entire Repetti family, as their faith through this past year has been tested beyond measure but not lost.

I enjoyed being a part of this event and post these pics to honor Gianna. While she is only 7 years old, she has done something tremendous beyond her years to help others who are suffering from cancer. Hats off to you Gianna! And as always, continued prayers for Angelina and for this family are appreciated!
