Nurses Give Piece Of Themselves To Help Cancer Patients

For National Nurses Week, more than a dozen local nurses are cutting out the compliments and giving once again. Not just their talents but literally a part of them. Their hair — 160 inches in all. Their loving gesture benefitting cancer patients. In one room at Lurie Children’s, Nya Hughes proudly wears her wig as she gets her cancer treatment. For her, the hair helps her feel like a typical teenage girl … not like a patient.
