Cancer Survivor Beauty and Support Day

Posted on: May 29th, 2018

Complimentary Services Offered to Cancer Patients and Survivors on Tuesday, June 5

There is no question that cancer treatment is difficult. Chemotherapy and radiation cause all manner of side effects, including some that are appearance related like dry skin, thinning hair and more.

Cancer Survivor Beauty and Support Day (CSBSD) is a national effort to provide cancer patients and survivors with the opportunity to get some much-needed pampering. Students at all 16 Tricoci University of Beauty Culture campuses in Illinois, Indiana and Wisconsin will support the 15th annual CSBSD on Tuesday, June 5, by offering complimentary hair, makeup or spa services for cancer patients and survivors.

Cancer survivors and patients can call 877.286.0096 or the nearest campus to make a complimentary appointment.

CSBSD is a day when those in the beauty and related industries in all 50 states volunteer to offer complimentary services to all men, women and children cancer survivors, regardless of cancer type or date of diagnosis. The event was started by Barbara Paget of Highland Park, Illinois in 2003 after learning about a salon in California that offered complimentary salon services to cancer survivors and patients.

“We are proud to invite all cancer survivors to participate in our Cancer Survivor Beauty and Support Day activities,” said Ross Bravo, CEO of Tricoci University. “This is a great way for us to give something back to the cancer survivors in our communities who experienced so much when fighting their respective illnesses. CSBSD gives our students the opportunity to provide a little personal kindness and pampering.”

Each Tricoci University of Beauty Culture campus will offer different services to cancer patients. To learn about the services offered at the Tricoci University campus nearest you, and to make a complimentary appointment, call 877.286.0096.
