St. Joseph Hospital of Orange, Calif. and the Joshua Christopher Salon
in Fullerton came together on May 6, for a day of pampering, food and
fun at the fifth annual Cut for a Cure event. Nearly $3,200 was raised
for The Center for Cancer Prevention and Treatment at St. Joseph Hospital.
Stylists from the Joshua Christopher Salon donated their time and talent
to offer discounted hair and beauty services to the community. Attendees
included St. Joseph Hospital cancer survivors and their friends and family,
in addition to hospital physicians and staff.
"We are so grateful to the Joshua Christopher Salon and to everyone
who came out to support this wonderful event," said Carmen Morales,
Cut for a Cure committee lead. "The stylists and staff of the Joshua
Christopher Salon spend countless hours contributing to the cancer fight
in our community through event partnerships like these."
