One of the first questions that kids with cancer ask is, “Will I lose my hair?” The Zichron Menachem Foundation collects hair from donors around the world to make much-needed wigs for children and youth who have lost their hair during treatment.

Noa Horne was selected, an 18-year-old girl fighting the deadly disease, to highlight their yearly campaign called “Braids for Power.” One of Noa’s pictures was so moving that the photographer sent it to the fashion giant Vogue Magazine. “If they want me with a bald head who am I to argue?” Noa said in a television interview with “First Edition.” “I was very happy and excited. The photographs took my mind off my treatments and the disease,” she said.

The image that was so powerful that Vogue, one of the world’s most prestigious publications, highlighted Noa on their official website.

Zichron Menachem, the foundation supporting kids with cancer believes that “happiness heals, and we bring joy and support to children with cancer and their families in Israel.”
