Ten-year-old Tyler Boone grew his hair for two years to donate it to his friend, Gabby Ruiz, who lost all her hair due to a medical condition called Alopecia.

Alopecia, according to the American Academy of Dermatology, is a condition that causes the immune system to attack hair follicles.

This condition usually results in partial or total hair loss and bald patches.

This would have been a source of embarrassment and shame to Gabby, and Boone, as a good friend, decided to do his all to help his friend out.

This organization helps make wigs at no cost for children who have lost their hair due to medical conditions.

In a video interview, Boone talked about his friendship with Gabby and how he wanted to see her happy again.

Boone didn't mind being mistaken for a girl and made fun of during the period he was growing his hair.

After two years, Gabby had the honor of cutting Boone's hair which had become 12 inches long.

The video showed Gabby cutting Boone's hair, and the smiles on their faces couldn’t be mistaken for anything else but pure joy.
