Hope’s Haven Cancer Wellness Center, a nonprofit organization that’s part of Circle of Hope and is dedicated to supporting those fighting cancer in Santa Clarita, is inviting local cancer patients and survivors to join them for a Celebrate Wellness Day at Indo Salon on Sunday.
This is a day of self-care for mind, body and spirit wellness, in which participants can enjoy pampering at each different station, with the help of manicurists, makeup artists, hair stylists and masseuses, according to event organizers.
“Life gets busy with (cancer patients’) treatments or the after-effects of being a survivor, so this is a day we wanted to set aside for our clients that’s all about them for pampering and self-care to give them a feel-good boost,” said Margo Berg, program director at Hope’s Haven.
Indo Salon has allowed Hope’s Haven to take over their salon for the event, giving participants a day to relax and visit with others on the same journey, according to Tricia Rasplicka, program coordinator at Hope’s Haven.
Light refreshments, a cucumber water lounge and a take-home swag bag are also planned to be provided.
After a similar event in May was well-received, Hope’s Haven decided to try and do it quarterly, Rasplicka added.
“The clients just loved it so much,” Rasplicka said, regarding the first event. “There’s so much ugliness in cancer, and our clients go through so much, so we wanted them to have a day of beauty and pampering.”
Celebrate Wellness Day is scheduled 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 8, at Indo Salon, located at 23460 Cinema Drive. Cancer patients or survivors interested in participating must register in advance by calling the center at 661-254-5218 and filling out a registration form.
