Robert Andrew To Host Fundraiser Cut-A-Thon

| February 7, 2011 | 0 Comments

Robert Andrew as one of the top salons and spas on the east coast is hosting a fundraiser for a local 5 year old boy and his family who experienced an illness where he lost both legs below the knee.  He has already undergone several surgeries and has a long road ahead with many prosthetics to purchase.  His story in detail:

Approximately two weeks before Christmas, a five year old had flu-like symptoms and was taken to the hospital where he was sent home with the doctors thinking it was just the flu.  The next day, he still had a high fever and complained of pain in one leg.  His parents took him back to the emergency room to then be sent to the University of Maryland Medical Center.  Over the next two weeks, his body swelled until he was unrecognizable and he was in ICU receiving dialysis and on life support.  Apparently a Strep infection invaded his body and it was not known if he would survive.  He finally started getting better but a couple days after Christmas, both his legs had to be amputated below the knee in order for him to recover.

Please consider visiting Robert Andrew Salon and Spa on Friday, February 11 from 5-9pm for $25 haircuts, threading and express manicures and pedicures or just stop by to make a donation to help the family. All money for services will be donated! All services will be offered first come, first served.

Robert Andrew Salon & Spa is located at Waugh Chapel Shopping Center, 1328 Main Chapel Way, Gambrills, Maryland 21054 and is open 7 days a week. For additional information about the event, contact the salon at: 410.721.3533, www.robertandrew.com.
