Recently, KNWA partnered with Proctor and Gamble and Revive Day Spa to provide a day of pampering to women battling cancer.
We received dozens of nominations from viewers.
Two contest winners received their prizes recently.
Traci Davis and Sarah Fries met for the first time recently but they act like they've known each other for months.
That's because they each knew of each other through mutual friends.
Both Traci and Sarah were diagnosed with cancer just days apart and both remember the day they found out.
"I just went in for a routine mammogram in late October." said Traci. " Just kind of crossed it off my to-do list. thought I was gonna move on down the road of my things to do and they called that afternoon. We saw something. We need you to come back in. Within five days I was diagnosed with stage three breast cancer."
"I was having migraines and so i went to a neurologist." Said Sarah. "I got an MRI. I got a call at 5:15, January 31st. My husband called and said they found a mass. We need to go to the emergency room."
Despite their conditions the women remain upbeat.
"If i was down all the time and crying about it I wouldn't heal as fast. I need to be here for my family too. fight for it to get there."
"In all honesty I know that I'm gonna have a complete healing. Either a heavenly healing or an earthly healing for a while so I'm 100% confident of that. It's easier to be upbeat when you know the outcome."
Speaking of outcomes, the two women didn't know the outcome of our makeover contest until very recently, they didn't even know they had been nominated.
Both won a day of pampering from Proctor and Gamble and Revive Day Spa. The women received beauty products from P & G and got facials, massages, the works, literally from head to toe. A much needed day of rest and relaxation.
"It's such a blessing because I never quit working. I worked full-time this whole time. I have two little boys. You don't take time for yourself to just relax and do something fun because you're always worried about taking care of someone else even though you're the one that's sick."
"When you're going through it you're pretty tired. You have to rest a lot. I haven't gotten out too much. I think my last massage was when I got married seven years ago (laughs)."
Laughter like that is the best medicine, but a day of pampering never hurt either.
If you would like to help out those affected by cancer, The Pantene Beautiful Lengths hair cutting event is Wednesday, September 7th at the John Q. Hammons Center in Rogers.
Hair cuts at the event will go to make real hair wigs for ladies who have lost their hair due to cancer treatments.
