One salon in Central Georgia is standing up to cancer. Strandz Salon in Warner Robins will host their annual 'Cuts for the Cure' Sunday.
Sylvia Pry, a regular at Strandz, says she's glad the salon supports finding a cure, because breast cancer is close to her heart. "I have a sister that has breast cancer. Luckily, right now, thank God, she's in remission, so we keep our fingers crossed all the time," says Pry.
Owner of Strandz, Kristi Harrell, says her aunt lost her fifteen-year fight against breast cancer a couple of years ago. That's one reason giving to the Susan G. Komen Foundation is so important to her. "It's important to do what we can do, and we can do hair, so that's what we do," says Harrell.
Once a year, Strandz hosts Cuts for the Cure, an all-day event where all the proceeds go to the Susan G. Komen Foundation.
"We do $10 minimum donation for manicures and $20 minimum donation for haircuts," says Harrell.
