Methodist & Younkers Cancer Survivor Show

Methodist  & Younkers Cancer Survivor Show: Next Wednesday, March 11th. "There is an amazing feeling when you are treated at the Methodist salon. They make you feel beautiful in your own skin especially when you don't feel that way at all." States, OFW Survivor Show Coordinator, Jessica Guerrero. Jessica was diagnosed with stage 3B Melanoma in July of 2011. She had several months of surgery and Chemotherapy to beat her rapidly growing disease and has been cancer free since October of 2012.1961010_10152055000191553_672122897_o

Guerrero was a part of her first show in the middle of her chemo round. “I had very little hair- but being treated like I was gorgeous for one night- when I really wasn't feeling it- gave me some part of "me" back”, said Guerrero.

“Having people cheering for you and being pampered after everything you've gone through, medically; is an amazing feeling. It's a night to show cancer that it did not win.” said Jessica. The audience are not the only people cheering for these survivors.
