059: Making Cancer Gorgeous – Kim Becker

In It's All About The Questions by Laura



Hello Gorgeous! No we are not channeling Barbra Streisand here. What we are channeling is how my guest is turning how cancer looks on its head and changing lives one makeover at a time and restoring the beauty in women that cancer steals.

Kim Becker closed her successful salon and founded a national non-profit to make it safe for cancer patients to get salon services and pamper them at the same time. What started as a fully-loaded salon-on-wheels developed into a national certification program that trains salons to take care of cancer patients and provides them with all they need to pamper one nominated cancer patient a month for a surprise Queen-for-a-Day makeover experience.

How does she do it? How can you get get your hair done, get a facial and a mani-pedi if there is no Hello Gorgeous! certified salon near you? Kim shares what you need to ask your salon to be safe and how her life has been transformed once cancer patient at a time.
