This Sunday, November 11, 2012, Melissa is proud to announce that Soluna Holistic Spa and the American Italian Cancer Foundation (AICF) will be partnering together to provide free mammograms for up to forty women.
This is a follow-up from an earlier event in September where Soluna Holistic Spa and AICF were pre-screening women for breast cancer and began scheduling appointments for the upcoming free mammograms. Soluna Holistic Spa is still accepting appointments for November 11th. In addition to AICFproviding the mammogram bus and equipment that day, the participating women will be receiving vouchers that will provide them with a much deserved relaxing treat to correspond with their mammograms, compliments of Soluna Holistic Spa. They are offering either a free 15-minute scalp, neck and shoulder massage OR a 15-minute hand massage with paraffin.
Providing breast cancer awareness holds a special place in the heart of Soluna Holistic Spa’s owner, Susu Lespier, being that her great-grandmother passed away from breast cancer and she once had a scare herself. Aware that many Latinas and African American women will unfortunately succumb to this disease due to the lack of regular breast screenings, and passionate about the cause, Susu knew she had to do something. Along with bringing free screenings and mammograms to Soluna Hoslistic Spa, the spa also continually offers a “Wellness Day.” In conjunction with Columbia Presbyterian Hospital, Soluna Holistic Spa’s “Wellness Day” offers women currently partaking in breast cancer treatment a day of wellness and relaxation for free. This is Susu’s way of giving back to women who are going through a very difficult and challenging time in their life.
