Share Article

The ten-year old non-profit lost one of their cherished RVs to fire this month. They have used the vehicle to help women with cancer get a surprise make-over.

The donated RV "Faith" catches on fire.

Becker said, “These mobile Day Spas are a huge part of who we are and help us when our recipients can’t make it to a partnering salon.”

In 2014, Monaco Coach donated one of their 36-foot Holiday Rambler RVs to Hello Gorgeous of Hope, Inc. a national non-profit dedicated to providing complimentary make-over experiences for women battling cancer. On April 14, 2017, the non-profit was devastated when they saw their RV on fire and learned it was a complete loss. Executive Director, Kim Becker said, “Faith, our donated RV, was a part of our family. She has blessed so many women with a comfortable, private space to receive the specialty services that we offer them. We didn’t have the ability to purchase the RV on our own and so when it was donated we were so grateful. We feel beyond blessed for having it all these years. But we know God has a plan for us and He knows how to turn the tragedy into a blessing. We look forward to seeing what God is going to do next!”

Although the non-profit partners with salons around the country, in certain areas, the mobile Day Spas are used to accommodate the surprise make-overs. Becker said, “These mobile Day Spas are a huge part of who we are and help us when our recipients can’t make it to a partnering salon.” The motorhomes allow for the Hello Gorgeous! experience to be curbside, at the convenience and security of the recipient’s home. The mobile Day Spas are also used to demonstrate the non-profit’s concept at events, national beauty shows, and at other cancer-supporting venues.

The RVs, HOPE and FAITH, are fully functional salons with a facial and pedicure area, nail table, shampoo bowl and a private area for haircare, head shaving, wig-cutting, makeup application and the like. They truly are rolling palaces for our Gorgeous Women.
