A six year old Cork girl is to sacrifice 12 inches of blonde hair in order to help her sister, who has autism, to get an assistance dog.

In a gesture reminiscent of a scene from Little Women, Lauren O’Mahony will cut off her long blonde hair in order to raise funds for Autism Assistance Dogs Ireland (AADI) this May. Her five year old sister Amy has been diagnosed with autism and has been on a waiting list for an assistance dog for 10 months. She could be waiting up to three years before a dog is available for placement.
