"Locks of Love" Program Benefits Cancer Patients

Nassau County Legislator Dennis Dunne, Sr., looks on as Brittany Thomas Donates her hair to the “Locks of Love” program to supply hair for wigs for people stricken with cancer that undergo hair loss due to treatment. She had her hair cut at Cutting Performance located at 2821 North Jerusalem Road in East Meadow. Hair stylist Dawn Pongratz collects and ships the hair to the Locks of Love and is very active in the program.
