A hair-raising birthday
SPECIAL TO THE TIMES NEWS
Christa Heydt had a hair-iffic day on her 30th birthday. She donated 10 inches of her hair to Locks For Love. "I have been blessed with a happy, healthy life. I'm doing this to help children maintain some normalcy while fighting cancer for their healthy lives." What made the day even more special was her dad, Allen Heydt, building contractor (A.S.H. Construction, Inc.) of Jim Thorpe, also donated 15 inches of his hair to Locks For Love to support Christa and to celebrate her birthday with her. Liz Legree of Michele's Family Hair Salon in Palmerton had the honor of cutting their hair. Michelle's is a family run business owned by Liz's mother, Mary Beers. Liz partners with her sister, Tara Pitchard and John Dempsey. Christa Heydt lives in Garnet Valley, PA and works for the Johnson & Johnson family of companies.
