Each year, Memorial Day falls on the final Monday in May, with a long weekend available to reflect and honor those in America\u2019s armed services who died. Everyone celebrates differently to acknowledge this sacrifice, and one teen, Kieran Moise, himself ready to join the Air Force, celebrated by giving back and donating his hair. At 17 years of age, Moise has some major plans already figured out for himself. In the long term sense, he fully intends on joining the military. But he also made the choice to cut his hair with the very specific goal that the hair goes to children battling cancer.

As a result, he\u2019d grown an afro measuring some 19 inches in length. Though the Air Force allows for natural hair, it does list some guidelines for length, namely, \u201cthe hair must not touch eyebrows when groomed, and it may not protrude below the front band of properly worn headgear.\u201d https:\/\/twitter.com\/UniNoticias\/status\/1399921416909299712 RELATED: WATCH: Delivery Driver Shows Respect To Home Of U.S. Air Force Member With this in mind, Moise headed in for his haircut. But, he knew, \u201cI\u2019m going into the military and I didn\u2019t want to just cut it off and drop it on the floor.\u201d So, on Saturday, he got his haircut knowing, \u201cI wanted to give back because there are lots of people that need help.\u201d Kieran\u2019s Curls for Cancer https:\/\/twitter.com\/WDBJ7\/status\/1399373852489273346 Moise\u2019s goals don\u2019t end there. Sadly, Moise lost a friend of his to cancer while just in middle school. This loss and his friend both inspired Moise to start a St. Jude fundraising page entitled Kieran\u2019s Curls for Cancer. He set the goal of raising $1,000 per inch of his cut afro, feeling the funds \u201cwill do so much good to help families dealing with cancer.\u201d At just the age of 17, Kieran Moise has graduated New Century Technology School and, thanks to his dedication and care, raised $30,000 as of Wednesday, June 2. He \u201creally hopes this inspires others to do something great on your own\u201d and that his cut hair will \u201calso help make some really good wigs for kids.\u201d Aim high, fly, fight, win, Kieran Moise!
