Bowling Green, KY. - Crye*Leike Executive Realty's Marketing Director, Amy Gilliam, donated three, 10 inch ponytails of hair to Pantene Beautiful Lengths.

Through Pantene Beautiful Lengths has donated 24,000 free real-hair wigs have been donated to cancer patients across the country. It takes at least 8 to 15, eight inch ponytails to make one Pantene Beautiful Lengths wig.

"I did this in honor of my grandmother, Lois Logan, who lost not only her hair in the battle but also her life to cancer on May 12, 2008," said Gilliam. "I like to think she is smiling down on me today because all my life until her cancer she had a beautiful head full of hair. I hope I'm able to bring a little sunshine into a cancer patient's life when she receives a wig, just like my grandmother brought sunshine into my life."
