Fighting for a Cure

Despite prevention efforts, some groups of people are disproportionately impacted by diseases more than other groups of people.


Cutting for a Cure is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization that strives to assist racial and ethnic individuals in underserved communities’ live longer, healthier lives by providing them with healthcare guidance, education and resources.


Cutting for a Cure has provided screenings for common diseases, disseminated health information using print, television, radio and social media, and directed individuals to viable healthcare professionals and resources to address medical issues and concerns.

Cutting 4 a Cure

Cutting for a Cure was founded by Dennis “Denny Moe” Mitchell, who is the owner operator of Denny Moe’s Superstar Barbershop located in Harlem, New York.

Cutting for a Cure is back to host its 2016 48-Hour Health Fair and Haircutting Marathon at Denny Moe’s Superstar Barbershop. The Marathon will take place from Friday July 15 to Sunday July 17. Twelve barbers will cut hair for 48 hours straight raising funds to provide health resources, guidance and information towards the prevention of deadly diseases including diabetes, high blood pressure, prostate cancer, HIV/AIDS and more.

This year’s theme is “I H.A.T.E.” standing for Health, Awareness, Treatment and Education. Through preventative care, healthy living and education, we are setting out to improve the daunting health statistics that define fate of people of color one person at a time. The marathon will provide free medical screenings, panel discussions, and access to health professionals offering expert advice on becoming healthier and stronger. Screenings are available to anyone who attends.

The 48 hours will also be jam packed with events throughout the marathon including a Barber Battle, Fashion Show, Comedy Show, Poetry Slam and live entertainment on our Summer Stage featuring celebrity guests. This event is designed for the entire family to enjoy.

We’ll see you there!
