Cosmetology Program Director Rosemary Vice, esthetics instructor Cathy Armstrong, and Shannon Carlson, Director of Employer Relations, the August 30th event was more than just a talking time. Participants received sample products and tutorials on the all-natural products advocated by MMC clinics.
Says Shannon Carlson, "Women of Hope is an awesome organization that MMC wanted to get involved with to show support of cancer patients. This organization helps patients in dealing with emotional and physical changes of having cancer. In the near future we're planning a “spa day” for these brave women in which we'll offer free facials, massages and hand paraffin treatments.
The event was attended by nearly a dozen women and even a few supportive husbands!
