Cancer patient gets a Mohawk to raise cancer awareness

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Many cancer patients wear wigs after they lose their hair during chemo-therapy. One Albany woman plans to do that, but she's having a little fun with her hairstyle first.

Vicky Stephens is raising awareness about cancer. Doctors diagnosed her with ovarian cancer last month.

She started losing her hair a couple days ago. Thursday, at Fusion Hair Salon, she cut it off.

A stylist created rainbow colored Mohawk for Stephens. The teal color represents ovarian cancer.

"I've got my family, friend, co-workers with me and  I just couldn't ask for more," said Vicky Stephens.

Stephens was diagnosed shortly after her team participated in Relay for Life. Stephens wanted to thank her family and friends for all their support in her cancer battle.
