Help and support continues to pour in from people here at home. Salons from across the metro teamed up Sunday for a Cut-A-Thon, with all proceeds benefiting storm victims. And one salon, "Revel Eight", had a very personal reason to get involved.

One of their long-time clients, Terry Long, was killed when she took shelter in a 7-11 in Moore. Terry left behind an 18-year-old daughter, Allison, who lost a parent and her home all in a matter of minutes.

"My first thought was what would I want someone to do for my child and that would be to send her to school. I would want her to go pursue her life as an adult," said stylist, Adrienne Peters.

The hairdressers from Revel Eight are donating all their proceeds to send Terry's daughter to college. Allison plans on going to OSU in the fall.
