#dearmom: I have a friend whose mother was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2016. It was horrific. But everyone came together to rally and show support for her. Then the unthinkable happened and my friend was also diagnosed with breast cancer two months later. Thankfully because of early detection and the support of Susan G Komen foundation, I’m happy to say that both are cancer-free!
So as Mother’s Day is this Sunday, I wanted to tell their story. And I want to invite moms and daughters to come to the Mitsu Sato Hair Academy this month for a day of beauty and to support our “Celebration of Strength” event, benefiting the amazing work of the Kansas City Susan G Komen Foundation.
Join us for 15% off facials and makeovers. A portion of all proceeds will benefit the local chapter of the Susan G Komen Foundation.
Strength is Beautiful.
