An 8 Year Old Boy With A Mission

Jun 27, 2015 | Views: 596

A young child with cancer, happy to receive donated hair which will be converted into a wig

What were you doing when you were eight-years-old? Most of us probably spent it having fun without a care in the world, but this special boy, Christian McPhilamy, grew his hair long over a span of two-and-a-half years so that he could donate it to children with cancer. What a kind child!

Some may think, what is so difficult about growing out one’s hair for a good cause? The reality is, it is tough. Due to society’s views of how a young boy should look, Christian had to endure much bullying, name calling, and other de-motivators, just because he was a boy with long hair.

However, nothing could deter this kind boy from fulfilling his promise to donate his hair towards the making of wigs for children with cancer. The constant bullying, teasing name-calling and discouragement from both children and adults alike did not make him cut his hair prematurely.

I wanted to share this inspiring story of Christian and his amazing determination to help children with cancer. His resolve is a shining example of not letting others pull us down with negative speech, especially when we are trying to do something good. As for parents, it is never too early to teach your children to help others.

I hope Christian’s story will inspire many people and also parents to guide their children towards the development of kindness and a good attitude from an early age.

This 8-Year-Old Was Bullied For 2 Years While Growing His Hair Long To Make Wigs For Kids With Cancer

2 and a half years ago, then-6-year-old Christian McPhilamy decided to grow his hair long. He was teased at school and often mistaken for a girl, but he never changed his mind because he had a very special goal – to donate 10-inch-long locks of his hair to make wigs for children being treated for cancer.

When he was 6, McPhilamy, who lives in Florida, was inspired by a St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital advertisement that he saw on TV. “Some people tried to call me a girl,” McPhilamy told Florida Today. He said this made him feel “not very good,” but that never stopped him from completing his mission and donating his hair to Children With Hair Loss.

Christian McPhilamy endured bullying for 2 1/2 years to grow his hair long for a very special purpose

 

He wanted to donate it to make wigs for kids suffering from cancer

 

Some kids teased him and called him a girl when they saw his hair

 

Even adults tried to encourage him to cut his hair…

 

…But most apologized when he refused and explained his mission

 

The bullying made Christian feel “not very good,” but that didn’t stop him!

 

After 2 1/2 years, his parents cut off his hair in 4 10-inch ponytails and donated them to Children With Hair Loss

 

Christian is an excellent example for each and every one of us!

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article. Christian is such a kind hearted boy. Just imagine a 6 years old boy has to endure all the teasing for growing long hair with the purpose of donating it to the cancer patients. Other parents should teach their kids to take Christian as an example and be good, kind and always help others. If adults do not teach their kids from young then it will be very hard to change them when they are older.

    With folded palms,

    Christian has a big heart and I really rejoice for him. At a very young age he already has a so compassionate heart, willing to go through the bullying in order to keep his long hair. Not many people would want to go through any forms of hardship for the benefit of others. May his story continue to inspire many more people to give and be compassion.

  3. Valentina Suhendra on Jul 22, 2016 at 5:16 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for sharing this beautiful story about the eight year old boy who grew his hair for 2.5 years and endured bullying for the sake of others. I could see his perseverance and this boy having survived this challenge will grow into a kindhearted and strong minded person who does not easily give up. I sincerely pray that this boy will continue to be inspired to benefit others.

    I don’t think that parents should guide their kids to do something like this in his age. He had a hard time in school and he did not feel very well. He did make some girls happy, but there are other ways to get extensions.

  5. samfoonheei on Jun 25, 2016 at 4:26 pm

    Christian’s story inspire each and everyone of us.It’s amazing to know that a boy at such a young age could ever think of keeping his hair to help others.He will be a great leader some day having such a beautiful heart.
    Thank you Rinpoche for such a inspiring article.

  6. CindyH on Jun 12, 2016 at 10:20 pm

    It is indeed refreshing and inspiring to read this article. Christian McPhilamy’s kindness, compassion and determination shines through even at a young age. It really goes to show that there are really no limits with 100% determination.

  7. Beatrix Ooi on Dec 15, 2015 at 4:15 am

    Christian is indeed very inspirational, it’s amazing to know that a boy could think and do so much at such a young age, he has set a great example of how children nowadays should be.

    As our living standard is rising, the newer generation is becoming more materialistic and of course this is not anyone’s fault, but in my opinion, I still do think that parents play a very important role in their lives. People always say that children are the reflections of their own parents, through observation, I find this saying to be true.

    Christian is a very unique and kind-hearted child, I’m very glad to read about this. I rejoice for such a great deed and his parents have succeeded, they raise him up well.

  8. Pastor Elena Khong Jean Ai on Nov 26, 2015 at 3:46 am

    When I read about this little boy, the first thing that comes to mind is what did his parents do to raise their son to think in this way? They have raised a boy who is willing to put his discomfort aside for the sake of benefiting others.

    Some might say, “Well, it’s just a little boy, no need to be so dramatic” but think back to when you were eight years old. At the age of eight, did you have the presence of mind to think of such a creative way to help others? Did you even think about helping others?

    So when the child starts young like this, it bodes very well for their future because it means they can think big and they can think beyond themselves, even at such a young age.

    Recently, I have been reading many articles about young children doing similar acts. For example, the media recently covered the story of a young boy who donated US$20 to Syrian refugees when he heard how much they are suffering. He had been saving up his money to buy an iPad but decided they needed his money more so he donated it. To me, this reflects that a child’s natural state of mind is kindness because their ability to make sacrifices for the sake of others from a young age.

    It’s especially important that parents nurture this aspect of their children because anyone can teach them maths, reading, history, geography, etc. But all of these are *skills* and *knowledge*, and they are not the development of character or quality of being. Rinpoche actually previously gave a talk about this here which some may find interesting: https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/me/in-forest-with-kids.html

  9. Vinnie Tan on Sep 1, 2015 at 7:20 pm

    It is truly amazing the young Christian’s determination with regards to the cause the he is working for. Despite the name calling that he experiences, he did not give up.

    What he has done at this young age, is really admirable. Even when people criticise how he looks, it hurt him, but the power of it is not string enough for him to give up what he wants to do. What I really like that Christian has done is that when people say something negative to him, he took it as a chance to share with others what he is doing to help.

    Through the example of Christian it shows that it is not the amount of donation that you can provide, instead, it is the thought and determination that you fight for to give back to the society. It also tells us that there is no starting too early.

    I am very happy to have read about this post as it shows the world that no matter who you are, how young you are, we will still be able to do something for a cause as long as we take that step forward.

  10. Pastor Henry Ooi on Jul 29, 2015 at 10:16 pm

    To think at such a tender age and to carry out his gift of compassion for others he did not meet could mean he has practiced compassion in his previous life. What an inspiration.

  11. Julien Roth on Jul 13, 2015 at 8:44 pm

    Amazing, just amazing.

    As a child, social appearance is rather important so avoid problems like bullying in school. But because of Christians mission, he sacrifices his school life to help others. He was bullied and was called a girl, but that never stopped him from doing what was right. That is true determination. When others try to put you down and yet you stay strong with what you believe in.

    Its amazing that someone so young can inspire so many people and can think so big. With a mind like his, innocent, caring, he can change the world. If all people thought like him, there would be peace. I can only imagine the matured, compassionate adult he is going to become. I can already tell he is going to touch many people with his kindness.

  12. Alice Tay on Jul 13, 2015 at 1:26 pm

    Christian McPhilamy 可以被称为很懂事的小男孩。他因为一个广告,不在乎其他人的眼光,而下定决心要留长头发,然后将此头发捐赠予那些少头发和需要的小孩.

    感谢仁波切在此分享这篇博文,告诉了我们其实要拥有一颗善良与慈悲心是可以从小培养起来。我们要时常鼓励小孩们善待周边的一切事与物。当锁定了目标,不要在乎其他人的贬低与讽刺,继续奋斗而达到目标为止。

  13. Edward Ooi on Jul 12, 2015 at 6:27 pm

    1)I have actually read about this story even before Rinpoche posted it on Facebook. It is really touching what and how much an 8 year old boy would endure so that he is able to donate hair to other kids just to give them the feelings of having hairs again and asks for nothing back.

    2)How many people in the world would actually do this for someone they don’t even know? I believe not many. I realised that the older we grow, the more we hide our true feelings and the less compassionate we become. When I was younger, I would give a lot of my pocket money to homeless people and sometimes I would even give them all of it but now, I would give less and I would only give money to certain homeless people.

    3)What I am trying to say is: “I personally feel that the older we get, the colder we become but it can also be regained if we constantly practice it with a virtuous mind”. Compassion is one of the most important thing we must have in life, it will determine what types of people will become our friends, how many people would hate us and etc. It is such a big thing that even most of the religions practices it.

  14. Lucas Roth on Jul 12, 2015 at 6:01 pm

    This boy is a true inspiration to me and he is not only doing it for the right thing but he has all the right morals and features of a healthy and good boy and life. For one thing, he could withstand bullying and peer pressure to not cut his hair for so long for the right thing which he believed in which also goes against peer pressure. He was not afraid of being different and he is inspiring that way.

    One thing which I am curious about, why do people have to bully him for being different. He is unique and if anything, people shouldn’t bully him because of his really good and untouchable motives. Why is society so narrow minded. Every society in every country must have a way and the fact that this boy can be criticized for being unique is like society doesn’t want original people and they want brianless and unoriginal zombies to be the future. We cannot bring kids up this way to think that there is only one way. Let them thrive and believe in what they want but of course that has to be healthy for them too.

    How did an 8 year old boy even have these thoughts? His parents and he are champions and I want to shake their and his hands because it is so rare to find such a pure thing in these times because due to many kids being spoiled, not being brought up right and just down right rotten like many people today. It is difficult to find someone that can defy others to get the great god. Respect to this child

  15. Uncle Eddie on Jul 2, 2015 at 3:52 pm

    Just an 8 year old boy, Christian McPhilamy who started by being so kind, honest, and geniunely straightforward and caring torwards those less fortunate then him. So young, yet already following the precious golden teaching of Lord Buddha, which said, “avoiding wrong doing, do good and purify the mind, this is the teaching of Buddhas.” What this wonderful boy did was so beautifully touching that would have deeply impressed so many people’s hearts and minds with great happiness and appreciation. In today’s tough mental and hard environment, the practice of love and compassion is all the more needed in society. Love and compassion make everyone happy, even when alone, and also make one feels wanted and alive! Most important of all, it makes even the toughest environmet “friendly, harmonious and peaceful!” Christian McPhilamy will certainly inspire many people, Om Mani Padme Hung.

    Reading about this 8 year old kid growing long hair for kids who are cancer stricken and have no hair.

    When I read this post earlier, I was just lost for words as I never thought of an idea like this and how a (then 6 year old) kid like Christian McPhilamy managed to think of such an idea after watching a TV advertisement by St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

    I really like how he doesn’t let bullies and haters pull him down and make him think of giving up. Despite how much criticism and hate he’s getting, he refuses to stop growing long hair for kids with cancer and that itself shows true determination and courage.

    Thank you Rinpoche how sharing this heartwarming post!

  17. Wah Ying on Jul 1, 2015 at 11:54 am

    What did I do in my 8 years old? I did not do something meaningful like this boy did!

    But what I can do now is not to simply pass judgement to something “uncommon” to my eyes, my culture, my education background or my faith.

    Try to let go of at least some of my fixated perspective about how the world should be…try to accept a bit more even I don’t understand, even I have “retrieved” all the knowledge stored in my brain…Be brave and be different in helping others.

    Thank you my Guru for sharing of this post. May my Guru has a nice day 🙂

  18. Leonard Ooi(Penang) on Jun 30, 2015 at 11:28 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this inspiring story. Against all odds this boy has to withstand the abuses and obstacles to achieve his goals. He managed to keep his long hair, save it and donated to the cancer victims who needed it most. What a noble act !.

    Regards

    Leonard Ooi(Kechara Penang)

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this inspiring and good qualities of this boy whom had a very big and generous heart. May Christian be showers of blessing from Three Jewels and may he continue to benefit others. He is one of exemplary example we should be follows and imbued towards our children as well.

  20. Phng Keng Hwa on Jun 29, 2015 at 11:41 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you telling us about this amazing boy, so courageous and determined to do what’s right. 🙂 You were right to say that he’s a shining example for all of us. To be able to withstand verbal abuse from both his age group as well as the age group of his parents is really astonishing. 🙂 The world needs more people like him.

    Your humble student,
    Keng Hwa

  21. So Kin Hoe (KISG) on Jun 29, 2015 at 10:30 pm

    No doubt Christian McPhilamy is so strong in his selfless motivation that no one can derail him from his goal, which is to benefit other less fortunate kids with cancer and no hair. I truly believe that not many of us can sacrifice our ego and willingly endure all the negative feedback from the people around us in order to benefit others, whom are unknown to us.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this inspiring article on this blog. Upon my understanding from this blog, there should be no limit being set by any sincere practitioner when come to helping those less fortunate people. Christian McPhilamy has done it. Rejoice for him!

  22. freon on Jun 29, 2015 at 9:24 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    wow.. his compassion have conquered all- fear, feeling of embarrass , being tease, bullied, talk by people. Yet the only concerned that Christian McPhilamy have was to give happiness to the cancer kids. I admired his courage and kindness, his determine to fulfilled his promise. This is really rare in current age.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this nice story

  23. Pastor Han Nee on Jun 29, 2015 at 5:04 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this inspiring story. Wow! At age 6, Christian McPhilamy was already manifesting such a kind and compassionate heart. He was ready to grow his hair long so that he could provide the hair to make wigs for children with cancer who had undergone therapy and needed the wigs.
    Such a kind and brave young boy is Christian, who withstood the bullying from youngsters for keeping his hair long!

  24. Patsy on Jun 29, 2015 at 3:57 pm

    This is so inspiring. Christian McPhilamy defied all who teased him of his long hair for a worthy cause. It certainly wasn’t easy but he was brave, stable and determined to go through this incredible feat!!!!

    Thank you, Rinpoche for sharing this inspiring news:)

  25. Swee Keong on Jun 29, 2015 at 1:17 pm

    What a nice long hair he has kept. This kid is so inspiring and he has the steel of resolve. It is certainly not easy when you’re being call a girl and wanting to being acknowledge as a boy. Fortunately his parents didn’t discourage him for completing his mission because parents have a large influence on their kids.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this peace of wonderful news.

  26. Pee Bee Chong on Jun 29, 2015 at 1:52 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for the sharing,

    The young boy’s kind heart, compassion and determination inspired me so much. I wish I have the kind heart like him and always care for others.

    Thank you

    Best regards,
    Pee Bee Chong

  27. Kevin W on Jun 28, 2015 at 11:31 pm

    Really inspiring story!
    He’s a happy kid with the kindest heart who felt for others.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing.

    With folded hands.

  28. HillHermit on Jun 28, 2015 at 1:50 am

    Thank You for sharing this! Incredibly inspiring. I rejoice in this “child’s” courage, patience, and determination. Actually he’s an adult (mature individual) in a child’s body whereas so many “adults” are children with stretched out skin. : )

  29. LOW KHJB on Jun 27, 2015 at 11:23 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for the sharing of such an inspiring story of Christian McPhilamy .For a young boy at the age of 6 ,he have already displayed a strong sense of wisdom,compassion and generosity. The most remarkable feat of this boy is that he was able to keep his pledge intact in order to benefit others.

    Christian McPhilamy certainly earn the respect of many who are much older but not wiser the him.His determination would put many of us to shame when we meet up with the slightest obstacles.For such a young child who could stay firm on a believe after being ridicule repeatedly by ignorant adult are truly rare.

    We certainly hope that there would be more of these rare gifted children to inspire those who are ignorant to the suffering of those less fortunate…

  30. Datuk May on Jun 27, 2015 at 11:03 pm

    What an inspiring young boy. His motivation to donate hair to children with cancer was never deterred by whatever teasing and humiliation that he had to endure at the age of only 6 years. His commitment to his mission is awesome.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing.

    During the 7th century Tang Dynasty of China (618 – 907 CE), there arose a great Buddhist master named Xuanzang (602 – 664 CE), who became a famed monk, explorer, scholar, writer, and translator. He is particularly famous for his journey to India, which took nearly two decades to complete, from 627 – 645 CE, and his careful translation of various Buddhist scriptures.

    Over the years, as the influence of his work spread, many variations of his name arose such as Tang Sanzang, Xuanzang Sanzang, Xuanzang Dashi, and Tang Seng. In fact, his story and works became influential in other Asian countries, where his name took on localised styles of pronunciation, such as Vietnam, where he is known as Huyen Trang; Japan, where he is celebrated as Genjo; and Korea, where he is called Hyeonjang. One of his greatest written works, the Great Tang Records on the Western Regions, provides stunning accounts of his travels, including the geography, customs and political descriptions of the kingdoms he visited in Central and Southern Asia. Due to his courage, perseverance, passion, and great learning, Xuanzang is considered to be one of the most illustrious figures in Chinese history.

    The most glorious period of the Monastery was during the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911) when it was converted into a Lamasery by Emperor Shunzhi (顺治帝) in the year 1656. In order to further increase the faith from Tibetans and Mongolians, Emperor Kangxi (1662-1722) bestowed the title of Provincial Commander-in-Chief to the monastery’s Senior Lama and ordered the whole state of Shanxi to allocate contributions to the temple. The roofing tiles of the Monastery were also changed to royal yellow glazed tiles in the years 1683-1691, like those used for imperial buildings. All Lama temples were then under the control of Pusa-Ding as the Imperial authority had made it the highest leading position of the region. The site has been the accommodation lodge for Qing Emperors, Mongolian warlords and Tibetan Lamas whenever they traveled to Wutaishan for pilgrimage.

    For Ku Shulan, papercutting was her heartfelt passion, which manifested in endless inspiration. Her works are colourful, full of images, and vibrant in colours, which can’t be created by a mind of mental distress or pessimism. Her legacy was not only the papercutting arts of great artistic value, but also her spirit of tenacity, perseverance, and not giving up in the face of difficulties.

    The Thangka of Chakrasamvara and Vajrayogini

    This form of the deity is known as Sahaja Heruka Chakrasamvara. He appears in a simplified form with only one face and two arms embracing the consort Vajrayogini. In some ritual texts she is referred to as Vajra Varahi; however, her most common name is Vajrayogini, or Vajra Dakini. The colour of Chakrasamvara is blue and Vajrayogini is red. Their general mood and appearance is semi-peaceful and semi-wrathful.

    It is really heartbreaking reading this article. A young boy has to endure so much difficulties and rejection even from his own family members but amazingly he did not give up and continue to live independently. We can see how cruel human is, even family members do not want to accept him. They should have just find out more about HIV and learn to take care of A-Long and not letting him live alone by himself. Really hope he is with a good foster family or charity home now.

    Ten Reasons Your Dog May Develop Behaviour Problems

    While dogs don’t experience higher emotions such as shame, spite or contempt, they have the same range of basic emotions as we do, such as happiness, sadness, relief, frustration and fear. These feelings are essential in helping dogs learn about the world, and encourage them to behave in certain ways to protect or help them. Barking, biting, chewing and many other common dog behaviour problems are often misunderstood or mishandled by dog owners. If a dog feels fear, for example, they’re likely to seek out safety from the threat and gain a sense of relief, while the positive feelings they get from cuddles and grooming encourage good relationships with those around them.

    The Reasons Birds Hit Windows and How to Prevent It

    When a building has mainly glass windows instead of walls, birds are not able to capture visually the fact that it is solid. It will just be a space to explore and as such, the birds do tend to fly into the glass windows and often seriously injuring themselves. This is an article to teaching us a few methods to overcome this problem and to keep birds away in safety.

    I am surprised China is actually quite advanced in environmental protection. Back in the 1960s, they had already started their environmental protection project. Back then they didn’t know if they would be able to grow trees on barren deserts but they did not give up and they keep trying. 57 years later, they created the biggest man-made forest. This is simply amazing. China does not look at short term benefit or return. They look at the long term effects.

    Kazi Dawa Samdup (1868 – 1922) was one of the earliest translators of Tibetan Buddhist texts into the English language, and a pioneer who introduced Tibetan Buddhism to the west. During his lifetime, he had served as the interpreter to kings, lamas, politicians, and explorers such as His Holiness the 13th Dalai Lama Thubten Gyatso (1876 – 1933), Alexandra David-Neel (1868 – 1969), the Maharaja of Sikkim Sir Thutob Namgyal (1860 – 1914), and Sir Charles Alfred Bell (1870-1945).

    His encounters with these well-known personalities played an important role in giving him credibility, and attracting those who would offer their assistance to edit and publish his translations, such as Dr. Walter Yeeling Evans-Wentz (1878 – 1965) and Sir John Woodroffe (1865 – 1936).

    According to Buddhist history, the first recorded use of incense occurred during Buddha Shakyamuni’s time, when a woman named Magadha Sangmo offered incense and prayers to request the Buddha to come forth and visit her village. Magadha Sangmo was the daughter of the Buddha main patron, Suddatta. She mirrored her father’s immense faith in Buddha Shakyamuni and was his ardent devotee.

    Thank you, Rinpoche and blog team on sharing this amazing story of Jadav Payeng with us. It is such an inspiration to see how one man’s effort can make a change and leave a remarkable impact on the environment.

    Jadav Payeng is just an ordinary man that lives on Majuli island. When he saw the island is in danger, he jumps into action and starts doing what he can do, which is planting a sapling a day in the barren wasteland of Majuli island.

    In the span of 40 years, a dense forest emerged from his effort and it is now even bigger than central park in New York. Many animals such as elephants, rhinos and even tigers have returned to live in that place. What he said was inspiring.

    “I see bad things happening on my island, and I do what I can to help.” – Jadav Payeng

    900 million trees are cut down annually throughout the world. Over 29 million trees are chopped off each day and 20 million acres of forests are sacrificed of which 6 million of those acres are turned into wood pulp to make paper. Given the extend of repercussions faced by China due to disrespect for its environment, a change of mindset should take precedence over just merely planting more trees to solve the grave matter. Perhaps this message may help them open their hearts to see that ‘Mother Nature’ is a *powerful force* not to be belittled or trifled with.

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.
~Tsem Rinpoche

  • What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.

    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer
