Local salon owners help one of their own with breast cancer

By Tiffany Blackmon - bio | email

LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC)-  Rachel Powell, owner of Salon 360, never thought she would be forced to stop cutting hair, but  finding herself without work, could soon be a reality.

Rachel, who is six months pregnant and already the mother of a two year old daughter, was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. Soon, she will not be able to bring in a steady income, but local salon owners are coming to her aide, and so can you. We'll have more on this developing story and on what you can do to help, later on Seven News at Five and Six.
