PELL CITY, AL (WBRC) -
A Pell City Salon spent Valentine's Day catering to some special clients.They delivered free makeovers, manicures and styles to cancer survivors who wanted to look and feel nice.
Survivor Elise Hood got a Mary Kay makeover, then a wash and style. She was first in line for the special day.
"Lovely, they've been very nice. I've enjoyed it...still enjoying it," she told FOX6 News.
Emily Maddox, another survivor, just beat cancer for the second time.
"You can't imagine [how this] makes you feel good!" she said.
The event is called Styles Make Smiles for Sweethearts and Lakeside Hospice partnered with the Primp and Paint Salon and other merchants to deliver it all for free. That also includes a selection of scarves and wigs and flowers and goodie bags.
"We realize that they did not feel well all of the time, and maybe they don't feel like getting up and getting ready. And we thought Valentine's Day would be an awesome time and just primp and pamper them, and let them have relaxation time," Teresa Carden with Lakeside Hospice said.
This is the first event like this in Pell City but organizers say they plan to do it again every year and perhaps twice a year.
