It will benefit Mike and Becky Sifford, a couple who have done much to help others, particularly cancer patients. Mike led numerous Relay for Life barbecues, and Becky gave support to chemotherapy patients through her previous business, Becky’s Hair Solutions.
Now they need the community’s help after a recent stroke left Mike unable to work.
