Renewing spirits from the outside in
For many cancer patients and survivors, changes in appearance caused by treatments or surgery pose physical and emotional obstacles to recovery.
An accredited cancer appearance center, Missys’ Boutique helps patients overcome those obstacles with spirit and style. Opened in June 2010, the center's mission is to help cancer patients and survivors throughout the region restore their dignity, build their self-confidence and reclaim their self-image. The facility is Medicare-approved.
