Lady Jane’s Haircuts for Men Makes First Wicked Awesome Wish Come True
October 8, 2013; DETROIT, MICHIGAN: Lady Jane’s Haircuts for Men and its foundation Wicked Awesome Wishes recently granted its first wish, taking 9-year-old Detroit Lions fan Summer Earl to the Lions vs. Bears game at Ford Field on September 29th.
Summer was diagnosed with a brainstem glioma – an inoperable brain tumor – in October 2012. The 4th grader was given 14 months to live and despite her initial positive response to treatment, her symptoms returned and became progressive in March of 2013. Through its partnership with Stephen Tulloch, Lady Jane’s granted Summer’s wish by bringing her on the field before kickoff to meet Tulloch and some of her other favorite Lions players, and then Summer watched her favorite team beat the Bears from the front row.
“I don’t think I’ve ever seen a bigger Lions fan until I met Summer,” said Chad Johnson, CEO of Lady Jane’s. “She was so excited to cheer on her Lions! I can’t even begin to imagine what she is going through but to see a smile on her face was the most heartwarming feeling in the world, and the whole reason we founded Wicked Awesome Wishes and partnered with Tulloch this season.”
“It was great to meet Summer and her mother before the game and I’m glad they had a good time. This is why I started my foundation and really enjoy partnering with great people like Chad, we can help or assist others when possible and we both really love to give back, it’s a great partnership we have with Lady Jane’s” says Tulloch.
Throughout the 2013 NFL season, Lady Jane’s is partnering with Detroit Lions’ middle linebacker Stephen Tulloch to raise awareness of childhood and breast cancer in Metro Detroit. Through the partnership, Tulloch and Lady Jane’s will choose a child or family that have been affected by cancer to receive two front row tickets and field passes to be on the field with the Lions players before every Detroit Lions home game.
During the months of September and October, the Stephen Tulloch Foundation and Lady Jane’s will also take 55 kids and families to each Detroit Lions home game from Angels of Hope and the Pink Fund, honoring families that have been affected by this terrible disease. All attendees receive a ticket, food and Team Tulloch shirts to wear to the game.
If you or someone close to you has been affected by cancer, please visit www.WickedAwesomeWishes.org and submit who you think should win our front row ticket giveaway!
