LOUISVILLE, Ky. - Oct. 3, 2014 - PRLog -- In 2012 he co-hosted with the Alpha Fraternity to contribute by raising funds and recruiting volunteers for the Big Brother Program. In 2014 he contributed all proceeds from that day to the March of Dimes organization. Brooks' most personal event is being held on Sunday, October 12th at his shop. The upcoming event hits much closer to home due to watching a close family member battle and struggle for four long years. Dwaina Jones-Harrison wasn't just a woman with dealing with a life threatening battle. She was a wonderful mother of four, the glue that connected the family and a woman known for her strength and courage! Being diagnosed with breast cancer should have been just another obstacle in her life, but instead she was taken from this earth back in April of this year. She is truly being missed by those who knew and loved her.

"She never really asked for help" Jay states. Brooks goes on to say that, "We were extremely close growing up, more like brother and sister than actual cousins".

This event is to not only celebrate the life of Dwaina, but to help raise awareness and support toward breast cancer. Statistics have shown that 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer within their life time. It is the second leading cause of death for women and to date no cure has been found.

Dwaina spent her last days in her father's home surrounded by the ones she loved. In her memory, 5- Star Barber Shop will be donating all proceeds from "Cuts for Cancer" event to the American Cancer Society. Donald's Bake Goods and Catering will be sponsoring the event and servicing food and drinks to all who come out to support!

5-Star Barber Shop is awaiting your attendance on Sunday, October 12th for "Cuts for Cancer" to celebrate the lives of all that have fought this terrible battle, regardless the outcome. Together, we will find a cure!
