Classmates Shave their Heads to Support 8-Year Old with Alopecia

Eight-year old Luke Nelson started losing his hair due to alopecia late 2018 and by Christmas time, he lost all of his hair.

His parents had to shave everything off and that affected Luke’s confidence.

“For a little 8-year-old boy to lose his hair, of course, it was hard and it was very difficult. Once he lost all of his hair he immediately put a hat on and he kind of hid behind his hat,” Luke’s mother Susan Nelson told PEOPLE.

“When we realized we needed to shave his head because he had lost all of his hair, his little brother Sam said, ‘Well, if Luke’s not gonna have hair, I’m not gonna have hair either. He immediately shaved his head. Then my husband shaved his head. So we made it a family affair.”

His classmates at Oklahoma Christian School in Edmond then decided to do something to life Luke’s spirits.

They all agreed to shave their heads.
