New App Provides Breast Cancer Support

We here at The Pink Event 2015 team love apps. Last year, our mega awesome DJ set up a more basic app in which attendees at The Pink Event could text song requests to him.

So that's why we loved this recent story in San Francisco Business Times about this new app that serves as a virtual support group for breast cancer patients.

Called HerStory, the app is a free collection of anonymous audio of patients discussing the disease and issues associated with it. As the Business Times notes, the motivation behind the app is to give patients support on their phone and ideas on treatment.

Pink Spotlight: Nurturing the Natural You Sponsors the Pamper Lounge at The Pink Event®

We had a chance to talk with Susan Peterkin-Bishop, who heads up Nurturing the Natural You, which endeavors to nurture, teach, and share professional knowledge on how to naturally embrace ones mind, body, soul, and hair. 

Susan, who also runs the natural hair salon Jaha Hair Studio, LLC, gave us a preview of what can be expected in the Brand New Pamper Lounge at the The Pink Event® 2015.  "I wanted to add something new and meaningful for our 5th year and the idea of a Pamper Lounge came to mind.  I think of this as the perfect addition to our event and completes the ultimate women's day out," noted the event founder, Tamika Josephs-Smith of Diamond Event Services, LLC.

Question: You're sponsoring the Pamper Lounge for The Pink Event 2015? What motivated you to do this? What will the Pamper Lounge offer?

Answer:  Nurturing the Natural You and The Pink Event are the perfect partners. The Pink Event is the ultimate women's day out, so my thought was that pampering should be a major part of this day.

This is the concept of Nurturing the Natural You—bringing and making more women understand that whole health also means taking time out to pamper themselves. This is not only because they deserve it, but also because their families and community will reap the benefits of a healthy, happy, and less stressed individual.

So in the Nurturing the Natural You Pamper Lounge, the ladies and gentlemen can enjoy hair care, nails, massages, make-up application, and DIY seminars on pampering themselves at home.
