An organization called "Hair to Stay" has planned a virtual event that will help women with breast cancer.

The non-profit is hosting a Home Cabaret on Sunday, but it runs through November. The event is similar to a variety show featuring entertainment's best in music, dancing, and comedy.

While the event sounds like a good time, it's all for a good cause too. The organization helps women— like Marisa Sullivan— pay for cooling caps.

Sullivan said the caps helped her keep her hair and her confidence while going through chemotherapy.

“You can still do the things you love. By saving my hair I had the confidence to get up on stage during week 13 of chemo and perform sketch comedy," said Sullivan. "I even surprised myself.”

Sullivan is now a survivor after a ten-month battle with breast cancer. She finished her last round of chemo in the midst of the pandemic.

Sullivan is taking part in the event this weekend to help other women going through treatment.

The event premieres on October 25 at 8 p.m. Click here to buy tickets to "Hair to Stay's at Home Cabaret."
