(CBS) -- A beauty salon in the western suburbs cuts the ribbon tonight on a new program to help cancer patients look and feel their best, reports WBBM's Regine Schlesinger.
Studio 10 Naperville normally is closed on Mondays but from now on, owner Rosalyn Morris says the third Monday of each month will be devoted to providing services for free to patients going through cancer treatments. She and her staff will help with makeup, massage therapy and for those losing their hair to chemo, cosmetic lashes and brows.
"Most of the time, if they're losing their hair, they lose all of their hair. I've had some clients tell me that was devastating to them. They never realized they were going to lose everything."
Her salon is the first in the state working with the Mondays at Racine Foundation.
"I have been touched by clients of mine having it (cancer) and we've taken care of them. If we can start a movement across the country that one Monday a month, we can take care of people, I am all for it."
She says they'll accept walk-in's but, prefer clients make appointments for the free service dedicated to cancer patients.
