Mosaic Salon’s Haircut-a-Thon
Raises $4,242.50 for Cure 4 The Kids Foundation
Funds Support Treatment For Patients Without Medical Insurance or Ability to Pay
More than four thousand dollars was raised in about six hours at Mosaic Salon at Boca Park during a special haircut-a-thon benefiting Cure 4 The Kids Foundation’s Charity Care program.
This is the sixth year Mosaic Salon has opened its doors on a Sunday and provided stylists and nail techs who donate their time so all proceeds from haircuts, manicures, pedicures and eyebrow waxings go directly to the Charity Care Program. The program ensures children facing a number of life-threatening conditions – cancer, blood disorders, rare and ultra rare diseases and genetic conditions – get the treatment they need even if they are without medical insurance or the family cannot afford to pay for treatment.
“Mosaic Salon has been such a strong supporter of our clinic, The Children’s Specialty Center of Nevada and we are so thankful to have them as dedicated advocates again this year,” said Annette Logan, President and CEO of Cure 4 The Kids Foundation. “Without this fund and our clinic to help them, many kids without medical insurance or the ability to pay for treatment would have no place to go.”
In all, Mosaic Salon stylists and nail techs provided 56 haircuts, 37 manicures and pedicures and eight eyebrow waxes. An onsite raffle also raised funds for the Charity Care Program.
More than 500 children have received treatment through the Charity Care Program since Cure 4 The Kids Foundation was founded in 2007.
About Cure 4 The Kids:
The Children’s Specialty Center of Nevada and the Hemophilia Treatment Center Of Nevada are funded, in part, by the Cure 4 The Kids Foundation. The 501 (c) 3 nonprofit organization was founded in 2007 by Dr. Jonathan Bernstein to ensure children with life threatening illnesses received proper medical attention regardless of their family’s income or presence of health insurance. To date, more than 8,000 patients have been treated by physicians and medical staff at the Children’s Specialty Center and Hemophilia Treatment Center. The Children’s Specialty Center provides medical treatment to children facing devastating diseases such as cancer, rheumatological diseases, as well as rare and ultra rare diseases. All our providers are Board Certified in Pediatric Hematology/Oncology. The Hemophilia Treatment Center (HTC) of Nevada is the only Federally recognized HTC in the state. It is one of 140 HTCs around the country which provides individual services to children and adults with inherited bleeding disorders. Studies show people with Hemophilia who are treated at Federally recognized HTCs have lower overall healthcare costs, lower hospitalization rates and lower mortality rates than non-HTC users. The Cure 4 The Kids Foundation’s Charity Care plan ensures patients at The Children’s Specialty Center and the Hemophilia Treatment center receive medical treatment regardless of family income or presence of medical insurance. www.cure4thekids.org
