I am so excited to announce the opening of my hair salon in Mission Viejo. Having my own space is allowing me to give back to the community in a way that I have always wanted.
On Sunday December 8th from 9am-5pm we are having a Cut-a-Thon to help support Maudi Kolster. She is a single mother, a daughter, a sister, and an amazing friend who is battling cancer (see a message from her below)
Men and children’s cuts will be $25 (normally $40)
Women’s cuts $45 (normally $65)
We will also have a small boutique of goodies great for holidays gifts.
If you cannot make the event please donate what you can. All Proceeds will go to help Maudi and her family at this time.
Please call if you have any questions (949)910-0252
A message from Maudi
When it comes to managing your health, there are many unforeseen challenges. As I walk with God through the many challenges of my journey with breast cancer, there are a few things that stand out to me. One of them is that no matter how much preventative care from exercise, managing my stress levels, and eating healthy, ultimately God is in control. I was sure that this sort of thing would never happen to me, seeing as though I was always health-conscious in my everyday life. It shows not only how unpredictable the disease itself is, but also how our fate is ultimately out of our hands. One thing I do know is that God has a plan and purpose for my life and he is going to use this experience for good.
Additionally, while I virtually have had no sickness or nausea that is usually associated with chemotherapy, I have gained 25 pounds and climbing since the start of my treatment. It’s a combination of things that contribute to this: one chemo side effect is that I am not able to taste certain foods, so as a result, I eat more to satiate; also, the drugs themselves have wreaked havoc on my metabolism; and lastly, I haven’t been able to continue my yoga regimen. Adding the loss of my hair and repeated facial breakouts, my appearance has completed changed. Although I keep telling myself it’s only temporary, it adds to the challenges that go along with this battle.
In terms of the financial repercussions of having breast cancer, I have been both blessed and challenged. I have absolutely the best medical coverage which was supernaturally orchestrated by God. I’m also incredibly grateful for the financial support from a few very generous people. In the beginning I didn’t think the illness would be so prohibitive from earning at least some income part time. However, once chemotherapy started, I realized how virtually impossible it would be to work part time due to the weekly medical appointments and side effects of my treatment.
Overall, each day I try to see the blessings. By far, I treasure the time I spent and continue to spend with people at my chemotherapy and doctor appointments. When I cross that finish line of this race for healing, I will have gotten more out of the cancer than it ever got of me.
Thank You so much for your support!
