Six-year-old Zac Gossage doesn’t have to fight his leukemia alone. He has a best friend.

When Gossage began chemotherapy for the disease, 7-year-old Vincent Butterfield shaved his head so Zac wouldn’t be the only bald one at school. But, according to, Vincent didn’t stop there: He also began selling handmade scarves at $15 a pop in order to help Zac’s parents pay his medical bills.

More than just detailing Vincent’s acts of kindness to his friend, however, this news clip does a great job of showing how profound a friendship can be between two children.
