MEDFORD, Ore. -- Today you can get a haircut and help donate to cancer treatments.

The 18th annual Cuts for Cancer is taking place at the College of Cosmetology in Klamath Falls. All proceeds will be donated to Skylakes Medical Cancer Treatment Center.

All services are on a walk-in basis. For a $10 donation, visitors can receive a profressionalhaircut, manicure or chair massage. Professionals from 12 salons throughout Klamath are donating their time to participate in the even. Several companies have been involved from the beginning as sponsors and make donations for door prizes. The event is from 11a.m. - 4p.m. on Sunday, February 24. 

The event originally started when co-founder Roni Nelson and her co-workers were brainstorming about how they could give back to the community. 

"Cancer was something that had affected all of us," Nelson said on their website.

They reached out to the Cancer Treatment Center, and the idea for the fundraiser took shape. Now, after 17 years, the Cuts for Cancer event has raised almost $40,000 for the center. 

The Cancer Treatment Center often uses the money donated through the fundraiser for projects that benefit the patient experience, Nelson said. In past years, that money has purchased an ice machine, display shelves for wigs, and comfortable furniture for the treatment center lobby.
