Pink Courage: Extensions of Hope

FAYETTEVILLE, AR-- This month you may notice some folks sporting a new hair do with a splash of color that represents much more than the current styles and trends.
FAYETTEVILLE, AR -- This month you may notice some folks sporting a new hair do with a splash of color that represents much more than the current styles and trends.

In this Pink Courage report  Neile Jones explains how an "extension" could help extend  life for some breast cancer patients.

A trip to the hair salon for Rachel Petty is about much more than adding a 'pop of color', she says, "It represents the fight for breast cancer and a cure for breast cancer."

Petty says, as a 5 year non-hodgkins lymphoma survivor, she  knows all too well about the fight against cancer.

And she's not the only cancer survivor in her family, "My grandmother and my mother and my mother-in-law area all breast cancer survivors."

On the day we caught up with her  family friend and stylist, Nikki Corning was  helping Petty  with some pink extensions as part of the She by so. Cap. Usa's Pink Hair For Hope Campaign. Corning says, "The pink extension is just something small,  fashionable that somebody can come in and do real quick. Any age can come in as well.  It's something that takes a short amount of time to show your small part to be able to support a great cause."

For 10 dollars you pick your pink and then wear it with pride knowing the company says  funds from it's campaign  will be used to help in the fight against breast cancer.

Petty says, "To me cancer is cancer.  We are all in the same fight together just raising awareness about it. And we all can support each other no matter what kind of cancer it is."

Which is why this survivor is wearing her pink in style.

Now if pink is not your style you can always just make a donation to the cause as well.

And just so you know, we caught up with these ladies at the Enve in Fayetteville.
