Partner with Great Clips of Charleston to Support Hollings Cancer Center!
In 2002, Roger and Karen Allen moved to Charleston, South Carolina, with their daughter Anne-Taylor to grow the Great Clips franchise throughout the Charleston area. They quickly developed close ties with the stylists and employees in their salons, as well as with members of their local community and the larger Great Clips family. With a combination of business acumen, a charming smile, and plenty of wisdom to dispense, Roger soon became successful and beloved. He enjoyed life in the Lowcountry, spending time sailing, walking, biking and traveling in their RV to explore new places where the Allen family could go on new adventures.
Roger and Karen's lives were changed in 2011 when he was diagnosed with Spindle Cell Sarcoma Cancer. As he began treatments at Hollings Cancer Center at the Medical University of South Carolina, the Allen family experienced an outpouring of love and support from those around them, including the local and national Great Clips family. Throughout surgeries, clinical trials, and treatments, Roger bravely fought the tumors. Unfortunately, Roger passed away on November 20, 2015.
We are proud to honor Roger's memory and continue the search for a cure for Sarcoma cancers by supporting research initiatives at Hollings Cancer Center.
