Survivors' Spa Night Was a Double Success
More than 100 women came to the Pink House for some TLC at our Survivors' Spa Nights August 7 and 14. What a great time both nights! Special thanks to the more than dozen industry professionals who donated their talents in wig and hair care, facials, nails and massage. Not only was it the peak of our #SurvivorSummer, it was a great way to launch our enhanced Be You, Be Beautiful Program that will begin soon. Watch your inbox for details.

Survivor Spotlight
Tara Walker has been spending many of her days at the Pink House lately. This is because thanks to a special program her company offers, she is able to take a one-month sabbatical to do volunteer work. Tara picked us as her charity because we supported her when through her breast cancer journey and have remained part of her network of positive support. But support goes both ways, and Tara has given hers, not only during her sabbatical but also as a mentor in our Mentoring Program, which she describes as the " for breast cancer survivor support."
