Eighimagesteen year old Brayden Carpenter is a senior at Collierville High School. He is a member of the school’s soccer team, DECA, and racquet sports. Brayden asked Allie Allen, a junior at Houston High School who is currently bald from chemotherapy, to Collierville’s Homecoming last Saturday. But Brayden had another surprise in store for Allie.

On the night of Homecoming he surprised Allie by shaving his head, because according to Brayden, “Hair is not important really.” One of the main reasons he shaved his head was because he wanted “a smile” from Allie and to make her feel less self-conciousness.

When Brayden found out they made national news, he said, “I didn’t think it was going to blow up and be a big deal.” For him all he did was get a hair cut.
