Nurture, soothe, rejuvenate and transform are not words usually associated with cancer. However, a make-over can be just what the doctor ordered. It has been proven that it can improve a cancer treatment patient’s attitude and emotional approach toward her treatment.
Prescription Well-Being is a 501C-3 non-profit organization devoted to helping women deal with the changes in their appearance while living with cancer. Prescription Well-Being volunteers offer spa services on location including facials, makeup applications, massages and haircuts.
Founded in 2001, Prescription Well-Being began as a small group of volunteers visiting Northwestern Hospital’s oncology ward each week, each with the same mission- help those living with cancer. The group grew as the years progressed and, eventually, Prescription Well-Being took shape. The new goal for Prescription Well-Being is to open a spa which will provide free spa and beauty services to women living with cancer. This spa will be funded through corporate sponsors and private donations.
A portion of the proceeds from “7th in Chicago.” will be donated to Prescription Well-Being. 100% of the money from the spa services at 7th in Chicago will go to the charity. So make your donation by not just attending, but by getting a manicure or by bidding on amazing silent auction items!
