Mercy Hospital – Iowa City and Corridor Radiology are excited to announce the first ever Snippets of Hope!

Snippets of Hope is an event to honor those who are cancer survivors, and those who lost their life to cancer. This event is open to the public. The main event will be the certified local hair salons, who have donated their time to cut hair for an hour so that the event and everyone involved can break the Guinness World Record for most hair donated in an hour! We also encourage any cancer survivors to come and do the first cut of the ponytails donated. All hair will be donated to Pantene Beautiful Lengths program.

We will be hosting this event in the Mercy Atrium, located downtown Iowa City in Mercy Iowa City. Anyone is welcome to attend this event. Snippets of Hope will be starting at 9:30 a.m., with the free hair cutting hour starting at 10 a.m. to 11 a.m.

The event will include free:
-Haircuts (must be at least 8 inches)
-Refreshments
-Giveaways and prizes
-Photo booth
-Participation of a Guinness World Record event
