Event to be held Saturday at Woodmen Center to recognize Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Don’t do a double-take when you see Sue Ellen Maddux with what looks like a pink feather coming out of her head. It actually is a feather and she’s wearing it throughout the month for a good cause: to raise awareness about breast cancer.

“So many of us have loved ones or friends who have been touched by that disease and we want to beat it,” Maddux said.

Maddux and about a dozen other people met at the Woodmen Community Center with owners and stylists from Total Experience Salon and Spa Monday morning to have the pretty little pink feathers woven or to have a pink streak dyed into their hair. The cost for the follicle decorations are $10 each and all the money will be donated to the Susan B. Komen for the Cure organization, which funds breast cancer research, education, screening and treatment programs. Read more...
