This year, Salon Professionals in Fayetteville decided to have their holiday open house benefit the Washington Regional Cancer Support Home. Co-owner of the salon, Tina Vanderhoof, once visited the support home after her best friend was diagnosed with breast cancer. To help raise awareness, she decided they were going to give away a complete makeover to a cancer patient or caregiver.
"They're so busy giving of themselves to take care of someone else that they don't have time to take care of themselves... and so to be pampered, she said was just absolutely fabulous," said Vanderhoof.
After several entries, the winner was named and after a week full of hair cuts and color, makeup, manicures and pedicures, the final result was unveiled.
"They have just spoiled me here and pampered me and it is much more amazing than I would have imagined it. I always wanted a makeover, but I didn't expect to get one. It's just been wonderful," said Sandi Caster.
Caster was the caregiver for family members during their battle with cancer, and she herself is a survivor of the disease. Both ladies hope the event will help bring attention to all of the wonderful services the Washington Regional Cancer Support Home provides.
