A few years ago Alicia Elmgren was diagnosed with cancer and since that time has battled the disease and fought hard against it. Her friends describe her as a warrior...A chemo warrior who just recently finished her 64th chemo therapy treatment. She has also been an active fundrasier in the fight against cancer through events like the Relay For Life. For many years she was a hair stylist bringing out the beauty in others.
