After experiencing thedevastating loss ofa close friend to pancreatic cancer, The Defining Line Salon owner Amy Hanson decidedtoput together an eventtobring more attention to the disease.
“A haircut can’t in and of itself can’t cure cancer, but the idea of community gathering around, we’re a small enough company and we can’t really do anything amazing unless our clients and community get involved,” said Hanson.
Pancreatic cancer is the fourth leading cause of cancer-related death in the U.S. About 6 percent of those diagnosed with pancreatic cancer are expected tolive for five years.
The team at The Defining Line Salon will behosting aluncheon for pancreatic cancer awareness at The Snow Eagle Brewery in Idaho Falls on Saturday, Nov. 3. Tickets for the luncheon start at 35 dollars and include half-price discountsfor salon services.
Tickets can be purchased by visiting the salon at 425 River Parkway in Idaho Falls or by calling (208) 523-2229. All proceeds from ticket sales and donations will go to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network.
