On Tuesday, June 6, 2017, Paul Mitchell Schools across America will join thousands of beauty salons internationally by opening their doors and extending a special invitation to cancer patients and survivors on Cancer Survivor Beauty and Support Day. Founded in 2003 in Illinois, Cancer Survivor Beauty and Support Day became a nationwide event when a Congressional Proclamation declared it an annual opportunity for schools, salons, spas, and communities to provide a special gift to cancer survivors throughout the country. The international event is a special moment for the 14 million men, women, and children cancer survivors – regardless of their type of cancer or when they were diagnosed – to receive a little personal kindness, warm support, and tender pampering.
Cancer Survivor Beauty and Support Day is a purely volunteer event, with no monies raised and no solicitations made. Thousands of volunteers from the spa, beauty, and related industries freely give their support and services on this day to all cancer survivors. Volunteers decide which services they wish to offer, and cancer survivors schedule their own appointments for that day.
To learn more or to schedule an appointment, visit www.cancersurvivorbeautyandsupportday.org and download the list of participating schools and salons. To locate a Paul Mitchell School near you, visit www.paulmitchell.edu ("Find a School").
About Paul Mitchell Schools
At Paul Mitchell Schools, we believe that education is an adventure and the learning experience needs to be fun. Our learning leaders are trained to draw out the artist in every student and prepare them to succeed in both their chosen careers and their lives as globally aware and community-conscious contributors. Through our annual “FUNraising” campaign, we’ve raised and donated over $16.7 million in support of many charitable causes. We’ve built homes with Habitat for Humanity, fed thousands of African orphans, and supported the victims of AIDS, breast cancer, homelessness, abuse, and hundreds of other causes.
Established over 35 years ago, the Paul Mitchell network is nearly 100,000 salons strong and in 81 countries worldwide; every professional hairdresser knows the Paul Mitchell name. Now, with the arrival of Paul Mitchell Schools, we’ve taken the world of cosmetology and barbering education by storm.
