Student, inspired by teacher’s battle with cancer, donates hair

CARLISLE, Pa. (WHTM) – A first-grade teacher in Cumberland County has seen many of her students go on to do great things.

Erin Hurley is no exception.

Wendy Wolpert was diagnosed with breast cancer in February of 2015. Her battle, like any against the disease, was difficult and included chemotherapy, surgeries and radiation.

Hurley, now a sophomore, was inspired by her former teacher’s fight to the point that she decided to donate her hair.

On Wednesday evening, Hurley had quite a bit of her hair snipped off at Didia Salon in Carlisle.
