UNDATED (KAIT) – Young girls who've had hair loss due to medical treatments or illness may soon have a new way to cope with their appearance.

A Facebook.com page is now dedicated to get Mattel's attention to create a Bald and Beautiful Barbie to help young girls cope with hair loss.

The page mentions the idea of also including accessories such as scarves and hats to be included with the doll, and creators wants to see any proceeds from sales to go to childhood cancer research and treatment.

To help get Mattel's attention and join the cause, go to the Bald and Beautiful Barbie Fan Page on Facebook.
