( ENSPIRE HEROES )Teen Shaved Head To Surprise His Date Battling Cancer

Allie Allen was diagnosed with brain cancer when she was 14 and recently suffered a relapse, so she was particularly grateful when her old friend Brayden Carpenter showed up to take her to Homecoming with a shaved head. Allen’s grandfather died from brain cancer in March, and her mother is suffering from breast cancer. Recently, Allen was forced to start chemotherapy.

“That was very hard for me to do but that’s one thing I got over and am not stressing over it anymore,” Allen wrote of cutting her hair because of chemotherapy on GoFundMe. “One of these pictures shows my scar now everyone can see it, but a scar is a tattoo with a better story, right?”
