Skylar and Christina Clayton honored their great-grandmother last week at Cut N Up in Port St. Joe.

Skylar, 9, and little sister, Christina, 6, donated 17 inches of their hair to the Children with Hair Loss Foundation.

The donation was sent off in memory of their “Great Granny”, Barbara Lawder, who passed away four years ago after a battle with cancer.

Lawder always gave to others and instilled that quality in her great-granddaughters, said Mary Clayton, the girls’ mother.

This was the second time Skylar, who donated eight inches, has made a donation to the foundation. For Christina, who donated nine inches of her hair, this was a first.

The foundation provides customized human hair replacement and care kits to over 300 children a year.

“The girls said that this is something that they will continue to do as they grow in memory of (their great-grandmother),” Mary Clayton said.
