Saw an announcement on jcpenney's website that they're offering a free haircut and style to all breast cancer survivors during the month of October. We've all earned a little pampering, right? Check it out:

I'll check it out...maybe cancel my appointment for Saturday.
BTW, how is LA doing...I lived in Santa Monica for 26 years (until 2/07)?
Hugs,

We most certainly have earned some pampering Traci. Thanks for sharing this with your pink sisters.

I am also getting quite a chuckle out of how will they know and what should I bring to show I am a survivor. You crack me up Ritzy!

Thanks,

Lex

I've been thinking about rather I want to cut my hair again but hadn't made a decision. So this made me decide to go ahead and get it short again. Called the local JCP and they would have done it today but I have to work so going down on Monday.

Thanks!

Just a bad joke, sorry. lol

I figured I would bring my pathology report from the biopsy or surgeries that I had...do we have to bring a note from the dr. lol?

That is WAY too much work -- I'm too lazy to haul all that to the salon!

Much easier to just go in there without a bra, say "Hi, I'm here for my 9:00 hair appointment, pull up my shirt, and flash them my surgery-scarred boobs -- I mean, hey, so many people have seen them by now, might as well add one shocked salon receptionist to the list!

I figured when I show up for my 1:30 appointment tomorrow, I'll just flash my scarred boob if they question me.

Thanks again for the info.

I was going to try to talk my daughter into giving me a haircut but it is probably easier to go to penny's and get it done.

Hugs,

Just booked an appointment for Tuesday, when I called they couldn't have been nicer! Thank you so much JCPenney. Of course, while I am there I'll get some stuff for husband and will check out a skirt and top for me I saw advertised.

I went last Friday, this was my second hair cut in three & a half years.
They were very Sweet and helpful.
My hair is very thin on top because of my new desease Graves so we tried to cut and shape it so that it would'nt appear as thin as it really is.
Thank You JC Penny

I am SO happy that so many of you have been able to take advantage of this offer, have had such positive experiences, and are looking so fabulously fabulous (I'm talking to YOU, MsGebby!)!

I'm a couponer, and originally saw this offer on one of my coupon sites (I then went to jcpenney's site, to make sure it was legit, before posting it here.). A lot of my friends look down their noses at my coupon hobby, but look at the smiles, pampering, and gorgeous hairdos that came out of it this time! So THERE, doubters! :-)

I too just spent $50 on cut..My reg. hair dresser just found out she has cancer-surgery soon...so I just ran in local place. I would have checked out JCPENNY for sure...

NICE THEY are offering their service..
