Hendersonville girl creates charity for kids with cancer

Posted: Updated:

Hannah Grubbs has never shied away from who she is. The ten-year-old from Hendersonville has alopecia areata -- a common auto-immune skin disease resulting in hair loss.

She feels fine, doing everything a fifth grader is expected to do, but it hasn't stopped others from wondering if there's something wrong.

"People always ask me why I don't have hair, or if I have cancer or they have to come pray with me," Hannah says. "And I wanted to do something nice for people who actually had cancer."

Last summer, with the help of her family and friends, Hannah launched Bows and Ballcaps. It's a charity dedicated to helping kids fighting cancer and those who have lost their hair. Donations also go to Vanderbilt Children's Hospital.

Hannah says she hopes to expand to several other hospitals and plans to start a care package program.
