In an effort to raise awareness and increase research for a cure against breast cancer, Yankee Clipper Hair Designers, located at 30 NW 10th Street in Milford is running a unique and fun “Think Pink!” campaign. In support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month Yankee Clipper is donating proceeds to cancer research from the profits made from their pink hot extensions and pink highlights.
Tom Ducham, owner of Yankee Clipper, has seen the negative effects of cancer in his personal and professional life and has pledged to do what he can to find a cure. Among those close to him is one of his employees and hair stylists Gina Carey, who is a cancer survivor. In July 2009 Gina was diagnosed with cancer but has now been in remission for two years.
“The more people that are aware, the more people can help,” commented Ms. Carey. “Cancer is very prevalent in our society and it amazes me to see how may people do not know more about it.”
During the month October, Yankee Clipper will be donating a portion of proceeds from pink extensions and pink highlights to a local charity that raises awareness and funds for cancer research.
“No one is too young or old to show their support for Breast Cancer Awareness,” commented Mr. Duncham. “Yankee Clipper is proud to support the efforts of finding a cure.”
