In honor of Women's History Month, the Style Bar Hair Bar & Day Spa decided it was time to provide some much needed pampering to three very special ladies. Not only would the experience prove to be better than they could ever imagine, but it lifted their spirits and made them even more beautiful than they already were.

The ladies that received this special treatment were three patients from the South Florida Radiation Oncology Program. It was a delightful day of massages, manicures, pedicures and facials. This was truly one of 'the' opportunities to savor in style.

It all took place on March 26, 2014 at the Style Bar Hair Bar & Day Spa , located in the heart of Palm Beach and just steps away from the inviting white sand beach and gorgeous blue ocean.

These three strong and inspiring women have each been battling their own type of cancer. They have put their trust in the South Florida Radiation Oncology (SFRO) , which is one of Florida’s leading radiation oncology centers and has been recognized at the national level as a technologically advanced cancer center. Its survivorship program’s mission is to dedicate itself to its patients in their journey from cancer diagnosis to survivorship, being a lifeline for the transition from cancer patient to survivor. It offers services such as counseling, nutrition, support groups, physical therapy, and psychological support.

Each one of these women were thrilled to be pampered with undivided attention. “After booking so many dates for doctors’ appointments, it’s nice to pencil in ‘spa day appointment at the Style Bar’ in my calendar,” said Gail Forrester, a breast cancer survivor and single mother of two.

“It’s nice to give back to the community, especially when so many survivors are overwhelmed with medical bills – the last thing they can afford is to treat themselves to a day at the spa, but it’s honestly the very thing they need and deserve, and we were happy to provide them with this. And I speak first hand, as a cancer survivor myself,” said Style Bar Owner, Perrie Gurfein.

“We just feel so blessed to have received this pampering. We’re very grateful to the Style Bar and the South Florida Radiation Oncology Program for this experience,” said Judith Kephart.

“We all owe our survivorship to our faith in God, but it’s day like these, where the good will of people show us to have faith in people and their kindness. This is something I couldn’t treat myself too, and I think I speak for all of three of us when I say, this is amazing, and we won’t forget it,” said Sandy Wade.

This was surely a day of beauty and rewarding satisfaction for all those involved and a time to connect for three women who experienced an unforgettable pampering experience at the Style Bar Hair Bar & Day Spa.
