Who needs hair when you have the world's most amazing friends?

Fifteen fourth grade boys from El Camino Creek Elementary School in Carlsbad, Calif., volunteered to shave their heads to support Travis Selinka, who was recently treated for brain cancer.

Selinka, 10, had returned to school with apprehensions after 7 weeks of radiation therapy, Encinitas Patch reported.

And so, his friends planned a trip to the All American Barber Shop to have their own locks shorn off.

"I was astonished that they did this for me," Selinka told Patch. "It was amazing just knowing that I have all my friends there."

Now, Selinka no longer wears a hat to school, FOX 5 San Diego reported. He and his mother told the station that they were thankful for his friends' actions.

"It was overwhelming and every time I think about it, it brings tears to my eyes," Lynne Selinka, Travis' mother, said.
