"The real beauty of Cancer Survivor Beauty and Support Day™   is the support it gives!"

  Barbara Natof Paget, Chair
 Cancer Survivor Beauty and Support Day™ Foundation

Cancer Survivor Beauty and Support Day™ (CSBSD™) is a nationwide and international event that takes place every year on the first Tuesday in June. It is a day of volunteering, when those in the beauty and wellness industries in all fifty states (and elsewhere) offer annually, complimentary services of their choice to all men, women, and children cancer survivors, regardless of their type of cancer or when they were diagnosed.

Cancer Survivor Beauty and Support Day™ (CSBSD™) is a purely volunteer event with no monies being raised and with no solicitations made on the day of the event or at any other time of the year. Unless a cancer survivor posts on Facebook, no one is ever privy to those survivors who participate in the day. Volunteers decide what services they wish to offer. The cancer survivors make their own appointments for that day. The survivors are encouraged to go to the website participation list, that is in alphabetical order, by state. If there is not listed a place near to where the survivor lives, then they are encouraged to email CSBSD™ at with names and telephone numbers of a few establishments in the beauty and wellness industries, and they will be contacted.

It is the goal of Cancer Survivor Beauty and Support Day to reach all those licensed in the beauty and wellness industries to encourage them to volunteer a service of their choice to every cancer survivor who wishes to celebrate the day.

A Personal Message

As a volunteer for many years, in 2003, I learned about a spa in Northern California where so many of their clients were being treated for cancer, that the owner decided to have a spa day for cancer survivors. Thinking it was such a wonderful idea, I went to a spa in my hometown of Highland Park, Illinois, and asked the owner if she might also support a spa day for cancer survivors. She offered a spa evening, there was a waiting list, and I was overwhelmed by the appreciation of the cancer survivors and the wonderful feeling the volunteers felt, participating in the evening. I realized it was not only about the complimentary beauty service, it was an evening of support. In a few years, CSBSD™ was reaching millions of survivors and thousands of volunteers. Cancer Survivor Beauty and Support Day™ is also recognized, since 2009, with a Resolution in the US House of Representatives, and has been cited by many state and local governments.

What is so important to me is that a cancer survivor or loved one, can google 'cancer survivor', reach this website and learn about all the wonderful programs that support the Cancer Survivor Beauty and Support Day™ event, and also offer support all year. I am so proud that one website offers so much for those in need.

Clips of Kindness® clipper cuts from Great Clips

For many, the idea of hair loss can be daunting and unsettling. But when the time comes, Great Clips stylists can make it just a little bit easier for customers. Clips of Kindness® is a service available at all 4,100 Great Clips salons across North America. Great Clips salons offer a free clipper cut (a very short "shave" using clippers) to anyone facing hair loss due to cancer treatment. Clips of Kindness® is a small gesture in the big fight against cancer. But it's Great Clips way of trying to make things a little bit easier, and it's just the right thing to do.

Customers facing hair loss due to cancer treatment can go to a Great Clips salon when the time comes and ask for a Clips of Kindness® clipper cut. You don't need a coupon or a form of any kind, and the clipper cut is complimentary. You can also ask to have your service completed at a rear station if you would like a little more privacy.

You can watch the Great Clips video about Clips of Kindness to learn more about the service: Find more information about Clips of Kindness at

For The Children

SeriousFun Children's Network started over 20 years ago, when the late actor, Paul Newman, generously created a place called 'The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp' where children with serious illnesses could go to simply have fun. Today, that idea has grown to include 30 life changing camps and programs nationwide. I am proud to have the support of SeriousFun Children's Network, knowing they are reaching the families to tell them about Cancer Survivor Beauty and Support Day, and I am helping to spread the joy of camp to as many people as possible.
