Roscoe hair salon raises money for boy battling rare disease

News

Members from the Roscoe community came together on Wednesday to raise money for a local boy battling a rare disease.

B Elliot’s Salon and Day Spa in Roscoe lent a helping hand to Brock Scarpetta and his family. The 11-year-old suffers from Batten’s Disease, a disorder of the nervous system.

Treatment for the disease comes at a hefty price tag of $2 million dollars.

Hairstylists at the salon spent the afternoon doing hair extensions in return for a $10 donation. More than 80 people showed up to support Brock and his family.

Brock’s mom says she’s grateful that the community not only hosts events such as these, but then show up to donate.
