A Special Day for Cancer Survivors!

It was 2003, and I was watching television as I was pounding away the fat on my treadmill. Peter Greenberg, the' traveler guide' talked about a spa in California, where so many of their clients were diagnosed with cancer, they decided to offer a special spa day for the survivors. I looked at the T. V. and said, 'I can do that.' Now, in 2013, Cancer Survivor Beauty and Support Day is celebrated in all 50 states on the first Tuesday in June. This coming Tuesday, June 4th, all across the country, men, women, and children cancer survivors will be enjoying a special beauty service at one of the almost 1000 participating places of beauty.
