The mission of Eyes On Cancer is to advance the prevention and early detection of cancer through education in the beauty industry. We are starting with melanoma awareness. The vision of Eyes On Cancer is to unite the beauty and medical professionals to lower the fatality rates of melanoma without causing harm through prevention and early detection.It is shocking to learn that one person dies every single hour because of skin cancer. It is even more impacting to learn that one out of every five of those deaths happen because the skin cancer was located on the back of the person’s head or neck. Hairdressers look at these areas every single day, but the truth is that most of them don’t know what the early signs of skin cancer look like. The good news is that if skin cancer is recognized early enough, 97% of people who get to the doctor for the proper treatment will be saved! In just 30 minutes hairdressers can get training to help them recognize the early signs of skin cancer.

Beauty Bus Foundation (BBF) is a non-profit that provides dignity, hope and respite to chronically and terminally ill men, women and children – and their caregivers – through beauty and grooming treatments and pampering products. BBF was founded in 2009 in memory of Melissa Marantz Nealy, who lost her battle to a degenerative neuromuscular disease when she was 28. When Melissa was sick and could no longer go to a salon or spa, the beauty treatments her family arranged at home made her feel “human again.” Melissa’s family founded Beauty Bus to bring this same dignity to patients and caregivers when they need it most.

In 8 years, BBF has provided, 11,500 free beauty and grooming services to almost 10,000 clients, and sent over 40,000 Bags of Beauty nationally. Our youngest client is 1; our oldest client is 101 – and 25% of our clients are men. BBF sees clients in their homes as well as at hospitals and social service agency partners, including City of Hope, Mattel Children’s Hospital UCLA, Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, and Ronald McDonald House.

CUT IT OUT®: Salons Against Domestic Abuse is dedicated to mobilizing salon professionals and others to fight the epidemic of domestic abuse in communities across the U.S. by building awareness and training salon professionals to recognize warning signs and safely refer clients, colleagues, friends and family to local resources.
Salon professionals are in a unique position to recognize the signs and symptoms of abuse in their clients and co-workers. Because of the intimate and nurturing nature of the relationship between salon professionals and their clients and co-workers, salon professionals can often spot signs of physical abuse that others may never see.

Research shows that most battered women never call the police or go to a shelter. However, they do usually talk about the abuse with someone they trust. Because salon professionals are skilled and experienced listeners who are personally interested in those around them, many victims suffering from abuse feel comfortable confiding in them – even if they would never tell anyone else. For an abused woman, the salon may be an ideal environment to seek out help because it may be one of the few places she is allowed to go without her abuser.

With proper training on how to recognize the signs of abuse and safely refer victims to help, salon professionals can become invaluable and influential community partners in the fight against domestic abuse.
