Help Shannon fight cancer!

Our friend Shannon Watters was recently diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, a form of blood cancer. Shannon is an amazing hair stylist who many of us have gotten to know, love and depend on over the years for his incredible work at Headset Salon and Urban Suite.  Shannon is a great friend to so many, and it's hard to imagine someone so full of life and joy facing such a serious illness.

Many of his friends and clients want to be there for him and have asked if there is anything that we can do to help him through the tough fight ahead. The reality is that Shannon faces considerable medical expenses and will need our help. He has been in the hospital for two weeks fighting severe anemia, a debilitating symptom of the cancer. He has started chemotherapy, but the treatment will be several weeks. Medical bills are piling up in addition to other living expenses (mortgage, utilities, etc.) and he will not be able to work for some time. 

His co-worker Vlada Cozlova and close friends have organized this fund with the blessing of his family so Shannon's friends can come together to help when he needs it most. All funds will go directly to Shannon. Please help as much as you can and spread the word on Facebook and beyond. Every single contribution makes a difference! We want Shannon back on his feet and cancer-free!

P.S. If anyone has  questions, please reach out. If we get many of the same questions, I will post  answers here to be as responsive as possible. I know the first question is likely -- Whoa, that's a high goal!!! It is.  And we know it will be a steep climb to get there. In speaking with his family, it's clear that his medical bills will far exceed our goal. It's an unfortunate reality. We're hoping that if enough people come together, small and large donations will add up to make a big difference. Every single gift counts.
