A young girl is inspiring people across the country after she shaved her head in support of her 3-year-old cousin, who’s battling cancer.

Morgan Weyland, 8, of Somerset County, Pennsylvania, walked into SmartStyle Hair Salon Monday and asked the stylist to shave her head.

“That little girl has a heart of gold. There’s not many kids that would do that,” Amanda Thompson, Weyland's hairstylist, told WJAC.

Weyland's cousin, Cooper Evens, was recently diagnosed with Burkitt lymphoma. Evens has a tumor in one of his intestines as a result of the rare type of lymphoma.

Weyland has another cousin and an aunt who both have breast cancer.

Evens’ mother, Kayla Nicklow, said Weyland's support means the world to the family.

“It was pretty powerful and meant a lot to us because with Cooper just being 3 and having a rare kind of cancer, it’s nice to see all the support that we have been getting from Morgan and the family,” said Nicklow.

Weyland said she wants to cure cancer when she grows up. Her hair will be donated to Wigs for Kids.

Morgan Weyand shaved her hair for cancer awareness. I think more people should be less selfless like my 8 year old little girl. I love you morgan!
