The Minnesota School of Business Massage students and Minnesota School of Cosmetology students gave the gift of beauty to cancer survivors. The students participated in a national event called Cancer Beauty and Support Day.
Survivors attended and were able to receive complementary spa services, including pedicures, manicures, haircuts, facials and chair massages.
One survivor commented that she heard about the event on the radio and was so excited to come in and participate.
The day was created to give the gift of relaxation to the survivors, and it was a great learning experience for our massage therapy program and cosmetology students.
This was the first year the schools participated in the event, but we now plan to make it an annual event.
