Guest who inquire if business is survivor friendly or indicate they are survivors will not need to explain hair loss, darken breasts, limbs, toes, fingers, removed breasts or loss eyebrows in a Survivor Friendly business. Survivor Friendly businesses will treat these customers with dignity and provide a safe haven for them to be served and/or pampered without shame, embarrassment, or multiple explanations due to altered appearance.
Chemo and other Cancer treatments can cause physical alterations that can be embarrassing and in some cases hard for women to cope with. Insurance and other agencies provide financial support for prosthetic wigs , scarfs , bras and medical treatment. But any beauty aids to supplement or simply replace physical features until it returns is consider cosmetic and are out of pocket expenses. Free Survivor Friendly bags include beauty essentials and other supplies to supplement the healing process and normalcy of life.
