Salon owner offers free haircuts for cancer patients during fundraiser

GREENVILLE, NC (WITN) - Escape Spa owner Victoria Tompkins knows all to well how small acts of kindness can uplift someone facing a cancer diagnosis and treatment.

When she was just 15, her own mother passed away after a battle with cancer.

Now, the new business owner wants to give back to those in need of a little boost.

Tompkins' Mom's birthday is in January, and so the stylist is offering free haircuts to cancer patients for the next several weeks and is also planning to donate 50% of all proceeds from her "Fight Cancer Cut-A-Thon" fundraising period to the Leo Jenkins Cancer Center.

Escape Spa is located at 1913 East Firetower Road, Suite J in Greenville. You can book appointments or donate by calling 252-215-9220.
