Get ready for your heart to melt.
10-year-old Thomas Moore spent the last two years growing out his hair so that he could donate it to a girlÂ with cancer. Two yearsÂ of combing and brushing and braiding his ever-growing locks.
And, a couple weeks ago, Moore got it cut.
What was his inspiration?
Two years ago, he saw his mother, Angie Pulos, watching a video on Facebook about Kyssi Andrews, a girl who'd lost her hair due to cancer, BuzzFeed NewsÂ reports.
Moore wanted to help her, and so hisÂ hair-growing began.
He âjust wanted it to be long enough to make the girl feel happy,â said Amber Ray, Moore's aunt.
Pass the Kleenex, please.
How did the experience go?
AsÂ Moore's hair got longer,Â they had to cornrow it to keep it tame, his aunt saidâandÂ Moore didn't like getting his hair braided, and thought about putting an end to growing out his hair.
But then âthey had to re-focus on the reason for growing it,â Ray said.
And are we ever glad they did.
Saturday, September 10, was the big day: The haircut. Ray said Moore was nervous, curious what his new hair would look like.
Afterwards, âhe said he felt good about it and hoped it would make other people happy,â Ray told Buzzfeed News.
Such an incredible act of love and selflessness. Awesome https://t.co/NJVW7cC6UZ

How much hair did Moore grow out? Three wigs' worth.
If that's not inspiring, we don't know what is.
This kid is incredible. What a big heart! There's still hope for the next generation https://t.co/y9nuagTBkO

Sadly, Kyssi Andrews, the girl who inspired Moore to grow out his hair, passed away on June 7, 2015, according to the Kyssi Andrews Foundation for Pediatric CancerÂ that was established in her name. We're sureÂ Moore's hair will be of benefit to others, and we know that his story most certainly is of benefit to the world and all of us.
