Hair dye colors for breast cancer

Cleveland family chooses pink hair dye colors for cancer.

Jennifer Peters, hair stylist and salon manager for New Design Aveda Concept Salon and Spa, styles Rachel Kuklinca’s hair Thursday after dying it pink. Getting their hair dyed with Rachel were her mother, Holly Hockenberry, and brother, Robert.

Holly Hockenberry and two of her children have dyed their hair pink, to help raise cancer relief funds.

Holly took part in the 60 mile, three day Cleveland Breast Cancer walk on August 17th.

Holly's grandmother lost her battle to cancer in 1982 and her mother is in remission after being diagnosed 13 years ago. Holly herself has had 3 benign lumps removed.

Since registering in February, the Euclid resident has raised $2 900 and she is still looking to raise more.

As a legal secretary, Holly checked with her employers and found them more than willing supporters of her fundraising idea. Her children were certainly the talk of High School. The Salon who were responsible for the hair dye colors transformation, are also trying to raise funds, by selling cookbooks filled with clients' recipes for the cause in October.

The walk which started at Thistledown race track and ended on Lakeside Avenue in Cleveland, benefits breast cancer research via Susan G. Komen for the Cure and the National Philanthropic Trust Breast Cancer Fund.
