Bellevue, WA (PRWEB) September 30, 2010
This October, Gene Juarez Salons & Spas continues their commitment to helping the women of the Northwest live life beautifully by partnering with the Puget Sound Affiliate of Susan G. Komen to offer breast cancer screening at their 9 convenient salon & spa locations.
Mammograms tests are an important tool in early detection of breast cancer, but due to many reasons, women are putting off these important screenings, which may lead to more advanced tumor size and stage at diagnosis, according to Susan G. Komen. In an effort to encourage testing, Gene Juarez Salons & Spas will be providing a relaxing mini hand treatment or foot soak, soothing cup of tea, and a special gift to women who receive mammograms. “The special atmosphere at Gene Juarez Salons and Spas and the extra pampering women receive at these events allows participants a time to relax and feel cared for. It’s a great reward for taking care of yourself,” said Cheryl Shaw, Komen Puget Sound Executive Director.
Screenings will take place at the following Gene Juarez locations:
IN-SALON From 9am–4pm (Call 206.467.1949 or 888.967.1949 to schedule an appointment through Assured Imaging)
