New Berea salon raises money for cystic fibrosis

BEREA — A new salon in Berea is sponsoring a weeklong fundraiser to raise money in memory of a Madison County resident who suffered from cystic fibrosis.

Cloud 9 Hair Design, 216 Mount Vernon Road, will donate all money received for waxing services this week to Bobbie’s Believers, a local group dedicated to raising money for cystic fibrosis awareness.

The organization was created in honor of Bobbie Jones, a Madison Southern student who suffered from cystic fibrosis. She died in an auto accident, according to salon co-owner Lisa Harrison.

Bobbie’s mother, Trish, created Bobbie’s Believers to raise money and help find a cure for cystic fibrosis, Harrison said. Trish also was salon co-owner Candace Himes’ instructor in beauty school.

Cystic fibrosis is a life-threatening inherited illness that causes thick, sticky mucus to build up in the digestive tract, lungs and other parts of the body.

The salon’s fundraiser runs through Saturday. Harrison said Cloud 9 specializes in hair cuts and coloring as well as waxing services. No appointment is necessary

Cloud 9 Hair Design is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday and Saturday. No appointment is necessary, but the salon can be reached at 985-5066.
