Beautiful You provides free salon treatment for cancer patients

GRAND RAPIDS, MICH. - One salon that is really making a difference for women with cancer is Profile Salon in Comstock Park.

Over the past three years, their Beautiful You program has grown from 20 to over 200 participants.

The salon closes one Monday a month to offer services like hair care, massage, manicures and pedicures for free to women who are undergoing cancer treatment.

Women like Amy Williams who is recovering from metastatic stage 4 breast cancer.

"There's a lot more that happens here than just hair," Williams said. "It's about feeling cared for and pampered.

"It's a good appointment instead of one of those hard appointments. I'm really glad I found out about this, it's been a blessing."

Williams also said it's about talking with other women about their journey and making new friends.

The stylists volunteer their time on that one Monday a month.

There is a fundraiser dinner for Beautiful You coming up in a few weeks. If you would like to attend it's being held on Friday, May 12, at Thousand Oaks Golf Club.

Tickets are $50 and I'm honored to be asked again to emcee the event.

If you'd like to attend you can contact Profile Salon at 616-784-1819.
