Cancer Survivor Beauty and Support Day™ (CSBSD™) is a nationwide event taking place on Tuesday, June 4th, 2013 and on the first Tuesday in June every year thereafter. June is National Cancer Survivor month throughout the United States and it is appropriate to celebrate CSBSD during that month. CSBSD is a special moment for all men, women and children cancer survivors, regardless of their type of cancer or when they were diagnosed, to receive a little personal kindness, warm support, and tender pampering
Cancer Survivor Beauty and Support Day™ (CSBSD™) is a purely volunteer event with no monies being raised and with no solicitations being made. Thousands of volunteers from the spa, beauty and related industries freely give their support and services on this day to all cancer survivors. Volunteers decide what services they wish to offer, post CSBSD™ signage, and cancer survivors make their own appointments for that day.
