Yesterday evening I attended the ribbon cutting ceremony for Mondays @ Milano, Cut out Cancer. This is a brand new non-profit organization aimed at helping women undergoing cancer treatments to feel better about themselves. Every second Monday of the month, Milano Salon & Day Spa in Bloomfield, CT, will be open in the evening to offer free hair and spa services to cancer patients. This wonderful organization was started by several West Hartford women volunteers who watched a close friend undergo treatments for breast cancer. Seeing the overwhelming response to last night's event and hearing about the amazing support for the program, I am sure "Cut Out Cancer" will be a great success. How fortunate we are to have such a caring, generous community!
