High 5 4 Kids: Caroline Cadden

EVANS, GA (WFXG) -

She's your typical eight-year-old; likes doing her times tables in school, and jumping on the trampoline. But Caroline Cadden has a big heart, too.

"I donated nine inches to Pantene Beautiful Lengths," said Caroline. "And I just wanted people with cancer to have some hair."

That's right: she cut off nearly all her hair to make wigs for women and girls fighting cancer. Her dad said it's just something she wanted to do.

"Her mom actually discovered that, she stumbled across that, we looked into locks of love, and they required 10 inches of hair, so we grew this out for about a year and a half, but she had nine inches and she was ready," said her father.

While her contribution has been a big help, for now, Caroline does have a wish for those less fortunate than her.

"Someday I hope they get better."
