This Homecoming Princess Had A Night To Remember

A young man expressed his love and appreciation for his Homecoming date in a way that has touched many hearts. Brayden Carpenter has known Allie Allen since they were in the 6th grade.

However, Alli had fallen ill at just 14 years of age with a rare type of brain cancer. Even though it was initially stopped, it reappeared during her senior year in high school.  She is now undergoing cranial-spinal radiation in order to save her life.

“It’s easy for some people to say ‘it’s just hair’ but it’s hard when you’re a teenage girl. I’ve always been attached to my hair— would freak out if my hairdresser cut off an inch too short. And I always had fun dying my hair cool colors … Sunday morning I woke up with about 2 chunks of hair left and I decided to … shave my head. That was very hard for me to do but that’s one thing I got over and am not stressing over it anymore.”

Having to go bald sounds petrifying for any teenage girl. Which is why when Brayden showed up to her door for their Homecoming date, he had a special surprise for her. He had shaved his head to in order to have Allie feel more comfortable that night. As we can see from their picture, Brayden’s kind gesture was much appreciated.
