For more than 10 years, Spa Mizan has been involved in many community outreach programs but the one that has been most dear to our hearts is Breast Cancer Awareness. Spa Mizan has hosted Pink Ribbon Days where funds are raised to support local Breast Health organizations. For 10 years, we have also supported Acadiana Breast Health Symposium, where survivors gather to celebrate their journey’s. Helping women feel beautiful again both physically and by lifting their minds, bodies, and spirits.
Spa Mizan’s own, Edi (Missy) Comeaux, has been there to bring a bright light and laughter into an otherwise dark and scary place. Edi has been there to see and feel healing unfold in these survivors and to witness first-hand as these survivors, many of whom have become personal friends, begin to rebuild and put the pieces of their lives back together again.
Who knew that after spending so much time with this sisterhood of pink ribbons that Edi herself would become a sister? Who knew that after so many years have walked through their breast cancer journeys that we would one day be walking side by side with one of our own?
Today we ask that you join us in sending all prayers and good vibes as Edi has the last of her “Big Bertha Chemo” treatments as she calls it. It’s the last of 4. After a few more tests, she will begin the next step which will be once per week for 12 weeks. We’ll keep you updated on her progress!
We at Spa Mizan, more than ever now, are committed to bringing awareness and support to breast cancer. We will remain diligent with our efforts to support our local initiatives and we will continue to celebrate our Pink Ribbon Days each October. And now when you walk into Spa Mizan and you see us all wearing pink lapel ribbons please remember that we are wearing it for one of our own. I hope you will all plan to join us as we go pink for Edi!
And just as Edi is starting her chemo treatment journey, another treatment journey ends for Spa Mizan family member! Stylist Mark McGee’s 11 year old son, Colin McGee, has been battling stage 2 kidney cancer. After months of ongoing treatments Colin received a clean bill of health this past week! Even though Colin spent months shaving his head during his treatment, he once again shaved his head in support of Edi’s beginning journey. He is such an inspiration to us all with his understanding and support for fellow cancer victims. We are so happy you kicked cancer’s butt, Colin! Enjoy your summer!
