Boutique for women with cancer opens in Spring Hill
SPRING HILL —
Women battling cancer have a new place to feel empowered.
The Boutique of Hope is a refuge for those battling cancer to receive help, hope, and a makeover.
The boutique has wigs, hats, and everything a woman needs to feel glamorous. What makes this boutique stand out from the rest are its free services.
Sharon Myers has been fighting cancer since 2013. Life has not been easy, but she found some welcomed support at the local boutique.
“It’s a miracle and more people should be aware of it, too,” she said. “When you look in the mirror and you don’t have any hair on your head it doesn’t help a woman’s self-confidence very much, so this is nice.”
The boutique is part of the Crescent Community Clinic which has been offering free health care to those in need for years.
“I am pretty excited about being part of this, I really am,” said Gina Ostolaza, a cancer survivor and Boutique of Hope volunteer.
Ostolaza said the emotional support here is priceless and she’s proud to help.
“It makes me feel like I’m giving back and there is nothing more gratifying than that,” she said.
Myers agreed, she said, “Cancer patients need all the support they can get.”
