GRAND JUNCTION, CO (CNN) -
Delaney Clements is only 11 years old, but the bubbly little girl has already faced a lifetime of hardships.
"I have cancer called neuroblastoma and I've been getting a treatment called chemotherapy and it makes my hair fall out," she said.
Delaney has received a lot of support from the community around her and recently, Kamryn Renfro shaved her head to show support.
"She's my best friend and, yeah. (You wanted to support her?) Yeah," Kamryn said.
"It made me feel very special and that I'm not alone," Delaney said.
"For a little girl to be really brave and want to shave her head in support of her friend, I thought it was a huge statement and it builds character," said Delaney's mother, Wendy Campbell.
The good deed didn't go unnoticed - but it got some unexpected results.
"They won't let me go back to school because of my shaved head," Kamryn said.
Kamryn is a student a Caprock Academy, a charter school in Grand Junction.
According to a statement made by the school's board of directors, the school has a detailed dress code and shaved heads are not allowed.
Faced with this dilemma, the girls' moms took to social media - and they received a lot of feedback from parents like Corrina Shirley.
"She didn't shave her head to be a part of a gang or to be a rebel," Shirley said. "She shaved her head to show her friend that she wasn't alone."
Shirley has two daughters of her own - and she says that while she respects the decision, she strongly disagrees with it.
"I think there's times that rules are extremely important and I think there's times that compassion is far more important than any rule book," Shirley said.
And even with the uproar it's caused, Kamryn said she doesn't regret her decision.
"Yeah, it felt like the right thing to do," the third-grader said.
The headmaster of Caprock Academy said that Kamryn will be allowed back at school Tuesday.
The board of directors said it sometimes makes exceptions to the dress code and will be meeting to discuss this particular situation.
