Help Your Spa Give Back to Those with Cancer on Sparks of Light Day

Cancer patients undergoing treatments like chemotherapy and radiation can feel alienated, but the healing touch of a trained wellness professional can ease their pain and help them feel a little better, even if it’s only for an hour or two.

For the third year in a row

For the third year in a row, spas across the globe are invited by the Faye’s Light Organization to unify for Sparks of Light Day on November 6. In Sparks of Light encourages spas from all over the world to provide free treatment services to those undergoing active cancer treatments as well as their caregivers. Internationally, spas in Bali, Haiti, and India are joining forces with hundreds of U.S. spas this year.

Local organizations

“Proudly, three Canyon Ranch locations are partnering with local organizations to invite people into our spas for this event,” says Deirdre Strunk, executive spa director of Canyon Ranch SpaClub. “Unfortunately, like so many others, I have first-hand experience dealing with the impact of cancer on a loved one. This event will have an immeasurably positive impact on our guests and our team. We are offering a variety of gentle services such as massage, facials, manicures and pedicures – whatever pampering, healing offering suits these deserving guests best.”

Sparks of Light

Sparks of Light was inspired by founder of Faye’s Light, Vicky Weis. Vicky endured a 13-month-long journey helping her mother, Faye, through lung, brain, and liver cancer. Sadly, her mother lost her battle in 1995.

“I have never forgotten how much she loved it when I would polish her nails and massage her hands and feet,” Weis says on her website. “She was able to relax and feel more attractive, and definitely felt loved.”

With much success

With this in mind, Weis continued on by creating Faye’s Light, a clinic in Chicago that offers free treatments for clients with cancer, in 2005. They clinic has provided 17,000 free treatments that were completely funded by donations. With much success, Weis wanted to create a system that inspired spas all over the world to provide services for free at least once a year. Now, she accommodates participating spas with treatment protocols, basic guidelines for treating clients with cancer, and email templates for potential guests.
