Breast cancer affects millions of women each year, and one local restaurant is doing what it can to help those affected by it.
According to breastcancer.org 1 in 8 women will develop it over the course of their lifetime.
Jekyll & Hide Cafe has been open less than two months and is already giving back to the community it serves.
Sunday it hosted a fundraiser for breast cancer, serving food, deserts, and having a number of different baskets and prizes to win.
A family the owners know is the inspiration behind it.
“We have a lady upstairs named Tracy, her mother just went through a double mastectomy surgery. Unfortunately, Tracy also carries the gene, so she has to get the surgery done in a couple weeks. So she kind of gave us the idea for our first fundraiser for the breast cancer awareness,” said Becky Nicholas, Jekyll & Hide Cafe co-owner:
Nicholas and the other owner, Kristy Harlow, are planning to take the money raised to United Hospital Center this coming week.
