Changing the look of cancer
For many cancer patients and survivors, changes in appearance caused by treatments or surgery can pose physical and emotional obstacles in their journey to recover and heal. Missys’ Boutique is an accredited appearance center dedicated to helping patients overcome those obstacles with dignity and style.
The boutique offers services and select products designed just for cancer patients and survivors – as well as a variety of retail merchandise for the general public.
