Anna Warne was diagnosed with breast cancer a week before finding out she was pregnant with her son Nolan.

In 2007, Warne had to undergo a mastectomy and six rounds of chemotherapy, before giving birth to her son prematurely.

Nolan was born at three pounds, 13 ounces. He also had neurological issues that will require medical care for the rest of his life.

Warne lost her battle with cancer last month, leaving behind her son and husband, Gardie.

So, for the second year in a row Salon Fifty Five will be donating the proceeds of its fourth annual cut-a-thon to the Warne family.

“Last year we raised almost $1,700 for the family,” said Louise Luttmer, owner of Salon Fifty Five.

The cut-a-thon is taking place on Saturday, May 5 from 1-5 p.m. at 11958 – 207th St. in Maple Ridge.

Haircuts will be a minimum $15 charge and will be on a first come-first serve basis. Seven hair dressers will be working to accommodate clients.

Donations will be accepted on behalf of the family until May 12 by cheque or cash at the salon.
