On Tuesday, June 4, 2019, all of the 110-plus Paul Mitchell Schools across America joined thousands of beauty salons internationally by opening their doors and inviting all cancer patients and survivors to attend Cancer Survivor Beauty and Support Day. Each school celebrated this special day by offering a variety of complimentary services – all with a goal of pampering and providing encouragement to cancer warriors everywhere.
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 for Cancer Survivor Beauty and Support Day, please contact your local Paul Mitchell School.
