Would you give up a day of profit to help find a cure for cancer?

The Brad Kaminsky Foundation for Brain Tumor Research teamed up with the Eclips salon in the Ashburn Village Shopping Center to fund a cure for brain tumors, by hosting a "Cut-a-Thon" on Sunday, October 24, 2004. The talented team at Eclips provided haircuts, facials, manicures, massages and pedicures and donated all the costs to brain tumor research. The stylists even gave up all tips and asked that customers use them to buy raffle tickets or donate them to the Kaminsky Foundation for brain tumor research. The event raised over $5,000. There were over one hundred new and regular clients who stopped in to support the event. After an Eclips staff member was diagnosed with brain cancer, the salon realized what an important cause this is, and how much research is still needed to find effective treatments and ultimately a cure. The Kaminsky Foundation was started in 2000 after Brad Kaminsky, an Assistant District Attorney in Philadelphia, PA, was diagnosed at age 28 with a malignant brain tumor. After Brad's passing in 2001, his sister, Lisa Kaminsky-Millar, of Ashburn, VA lovingly carried on the foundation. "It was an incredible honor to work with the talented and generous staff at Eclips in Ashburn. I was touched so deeply by all the people who came out to support the cause and moved beyond words that a business and all of its employees would donate their time and money to help find a cure for cancer. It was amazing to see these professionals working so hard and giving up their personal income in the name of cancer research. Imagine how much money would be raised if every company gave one day to a cause." Millar said. Mrs. Pennsylvania International, 2004, Allison Hirschmann was also on site. She helped sell the Kaminsky Foundation's Cooking up a CURE cookbooks while giving out autographs to excited little girls. Hirschmann is the official spokesperson for the Kaminsky foundation, as her platform is cancer awareness. The Kaminsky Foundation has raised over $115,000 for brain tumor research through golf tournaments, silent auctions, and their Cooking up a CURE cookbook, now in its fourth volume. The foundation has donated all of the funds to major brain tumor research hospitals such as Duke University's brain tumor center. According to the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation and American Cancer Society statistics, brain tumors are the most deadly of all childhood cancers and the leading cause of cancer death in men ages 20-39.
