Each month we are going to feature a different Community Helper here on Long Island. They will teach us about what they do for our community and we will have fun activities for you to do related to their occupation.
This campaign is being run in the spirit of Making A Difference.
Meet Sara who is a sweet and loving 6-year old girl.
Sara’s mom told us: “Sometimes Sara wants to chew gum and I’ll tell her she can’t have any because she’ll get it in her hair (like she used to when she had hair) she’ll just laugh and say “mom, I don’t have hair”. She’s a happy little girl and enjoys life. Sara started loosing her hair in September 2014 and by December 2014 she had no hair at all. She was then diagnosed with Alopecia. It was a very difficult time for me, but Sara seemed to me taking way better than I was. Her confidence amazes me and to this date she rocks her bald head. There are times though when I’m fixing her little sisters hair that she’ll tell me she wants her hair back so I can fix her hair how I used to with pretty bows. Oh how I wish it was me and not her going through this . “

She started her crafty business through Facebook and word of mouth last year to make some extra cash for the holiday season. Her inspiration was her daughter who celebrated her first Christmas last year.
Each month Momee Friends will be featuring a poem written by Local Award Winning Author and Poet Darren Sardelli.
