The program, Cut For The Cause, gives people a chance to get haircuts and help out.
The founder of Cut For The Cause, Jessie Sheltra decided to donate her hair in 2008. She said once she started talking about it, she realized many people wanted to do it but were confused about the process.
This prompted Sheltra to start hosting the event annually at The Cancer Center in Yuma.
At the first annual Cut For The Cause, Sheltra made the cut herself. "I had it pretty short so it's taken about two years to get it back to where it is now and I'm thinking I'll be able to do it again this year," she said.
She said it was a big change but she's happy to do it again. Four stylists from around town will be at The Cancer Center's new location Sunday to cut hair from 1 p.m to 4 p.m.
The Cancer Center's new location is off Avenue A in the Women and Childrens Services building.
Sheltra adds that they will be accepting hair with some dye in it, a common misconception that often deters people who want to participate.
The locks go to make wigs for cancer patients. "I know with most of the programs, they've actually discussed that it actually takes more than one ponytail to make a wig. It may take up to three or four," says Sheltra.
Cut For The Cause takes donations of 8-10-and 12 inches of hair. But those with shorter hair can get a basic trim with a $20 donation.
Sheltra said, "We're just happy to be able and participate and know that somebody, somewhere is going to be able to benefit from it."
