Losing hair from chemotherapy is an unfortunate likelihood when people are undergoing cancer treatments. Neftali Martin was diagnosed with cancer, so instead of waiting for his hair to fall out in clumps on its own, he decided to have his coworker and friend, Joel Ortega, shave his head for him.
Without telling him, Joel, a barber at Lords & Barbers in Spain, decided that a big act of solidarity was in order. “You are not alone,” he told Neftali as he finished shaving his head. Then, without another word, he turned the clippers on himself and started removing his own hair. He promised to keep his head shaved for as long as his friend’s treatment continues.
“For those who do not know him @imjooeel is not just a coworker, for me a brother. I love you, bro,” Neftali wrote.
Watch his emotional reaction in the video below, and don’t forget to share this beautiful display of love.
