Jekyll & Hyde Cafe holds breast cancer fundraiser

Harrison

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.
