Breast cancer survivors get pampered

October 24, 2004

Albany- In honor of breast cancer awareness month, the American Cancer Society, Phoebe Putney, and Dougherty County Public Health sponsored a pamper day.

Albany area hair stylists were on hand to give breast cancer survivors like Pat Miller a complimentary new hairdo.

"It's just so wonderful for the stylists to come out and volunteer there time and do this for us as survivors, so we couldn't ask for a better turnout, or a better day," says Miller of Phoebe Putney Cancer Center.

The women also received relaxing hand massages. More than 25 breast cancer survivors attended the pamper day.
