WATCH: Barber Shaves His Head To Support Mother Fighting Cancer, Internet Reacts
A barber’s kind gesture has caught the attention of the internet. Miles Woodworth, the owner of Nomad’s Barbershop in Parkersburg, West Virginia, decided to shave his head in support of his mother, who is battling cancer. Miles filmed the touching moment and shared it on his barbershop’s Facebook page.
The video shows Miles standing in front of the camera with his mother, who is wearing a hairnet, by his side. As a Beatles song plays in the background, Miles takes a deep breath before shaving his head with a pair of clippers. His female client in the background reacts in shock but Miles remains composed and continues to shave his head until it is completely bald.
The act of kindness and support from Miles has touched the hearts of many people on social media, who praised him for his compassion and selflessness.
One commenter wrote, “This made me tear up. God bless this man for being there for his mom.”
Another user said, “Beautiful. Your mom must be so proud of you.”
Miles’ mother was also overcome with emotion in the video, thanking her son for supporting her through difficult times.
“I’m just so proud of you,” she told him. “You are everything — you’re absolutely everything.”
Nomad’s Barbershop later updated their Facebook page to thank everyone for their kind words and show support for others going through similar struggles.
“To all the other families out there who have been impacted by cancer, you have our love and support,” the barbershop said.
The video is a testament to the power of compassion and support during difficult times, as well as the strength of the human spirit. It is heartening to see how one small act of love can inspire so many people and bring them together in a show of solidarity.
