10-year-old Megan Ragucci was diagnosed with Alopecia Universalis in the first grade, an autoimmune disease which causes total body hair loss.

Megan and her mother Jenn Ragucci are frequent customers at Sunrise Bagels in Wyckoff.

Earlier this month, owner Sam Aggarwal approached Jenn and told her he wanted to shave his head to match Megan.

"He did this solely because he feels the world needs more kindness and he doesn't want Meg to feel alone," Jenn said.

So, Meg and Jenn met Sam and his wife at a local hair salon where a friend shaved Sam's head.

"Sam and his wife did this purely out of kindness," says Jenn. "They didn't want any attention or anything out of it, just a smile from Meg was enough. This couple is a beautiful couple with the most genuine hearts."

Jenn says life for Meg can be difficult at times.

"She can't go anywhere without someone staring or asking if she's sick," she said. "She has unfortunately experienced some of the world's unkindness, so when someone goes above and beyond to show her she's not alone, people are still kind… it just means the world to our family!"
