DAYTON, Ohio (Oct. 17, 2014) – Jetta Fosberg used to have long hair, but the Ohio girl cut it in order to help kids with cancer.
But that decision has led to bullying at school, according to WHIO.
Jetta donated 14 inches of her hair to the “Wigs for Kids” program. After getting the haircut, she decided she wanted it even shorter. Her mother said a student called her “ugly” and said she must want to be a boy.
Jetta’s mother reported the bullying, and said the response was not to her satisfaction. She was told, in effect, to “toughen up and deal with it,” she told the TV station.
The family set up a Facebook page to tell Jetta’s story and has been overwhelmed with support.
