NYC's Bartender's Fight Against Breast Cancer

In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, bartender Michelle Milton for Neely's Barbecue Parlor will be donating 100 percent of her tips for the month of October to Chemo Comfort, which provides cancer patients with kits that help with the side effects of chemotherapy.

And at the end of the month, Milton will shave her head as an act of solidarity to everyone with the disease.

Michelle is a former media account executive who made bartending her new career four years ago. She became a dedicated breast cancer awareness advocate after losing close friends, including the woman whom she considers her mentor, to the disease.

In the past three years, she has raised thousands of dollars for breast cancer foundations by dedicating all of her tips - the bulk of her salary for the month.
