Anyone who knows Lindsey, a stylist here at DeRiah Salon in Cedarburg, has probably also heard of her black golden retriever mix dog named Koda. Outside of doing hair, Lindsey is usually walking, swimming, throwing a frisbee or taking a nap with Koda and her boyfriend, Cullen. Cullen & Lindsey have been together over 6 years. In late 2009, Cullen was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, a scary, but usually curable form of cancer. Cullen went through several rounds of chemotherapy and radiation. After 6 months, the cancer was gone! It gave them a small glimpse into the life of long term cancer survivors and how devastating the disease can be. Today, she stumbled upon a local event combining her two favorite things: Cullen AND Koda! The American Cancer Society Bark for Life event is an opportunity to help save lives and see more birthdays! Approximately 1.5 million people will be diagnosed with cancer this year, maybe even someone you know. The walk takes place on Sunday, July 24 at 1:00 pm at the Hartford Independence Park, Dog Excercise Area. We’d love to have you & your pooch join us, but if you can’t make it, we will appreciate any donation.
Hope to see you there!
