October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and I streaked for the cure!

I hate cancer. It's an evil disease that strikes so many without any real rhyme or reason. My family isn't a stranger to it either. I have two aunts who are cancer survivors. One had breast cancer the other ovarian cancer.

Each October I streak for the cure. I'm doing it to honor my aunts and survivors as well as those who fight the battle with cancer. I had my friend, who is a beautician, put this hair extension in my hair yesterday and I've sent my contribution to the American Cancer Society.

Although, my extension isn't directly linked to any one organization I did a little research to see what, if any, salons locally were offering pink hair extensions for Breast Cancer Awareness month and I found two in the area.

- Salon La T Da in Poplar Grove is offering "Pink Hair for Hope" extensions. It's a $10 donation to the National Breast Cancer Foundation. (815) 756-0101

- Reflections Hair Salon and Spa in Winnebago is offering $5 pink hair extensions with a donation to the cause. (815) 335-2080

There may be others, I just couldn't find them on-line. If you know of any please let me know. I'd like to recognize them for their support in the fight against cancer.

If streaking your hair isn't quiet your style, we have another wonderful way to help support the cause with our "Pink Party" this October 24th at Prosesser's Chop House.

The event will benefit the Winnebago County chapter of Pink Heals, a nonprofit organization that raises awareness and funds for local families battling cancer.
It's going to be great night of fun, music, food and the unforgettable Bra Auction.You don't want to miss this. Gather all you girlfriends and make plans to join us as we band together in the fight to end cancer.
