On Monday, October 30th, Soul Source was proud to participate in the Long Island Beauty Ball, an annual fund-raising event for Mondays at Racine Cancer Care Foundation. Mondays at Racine provides free beauty and wellness services to people living with cancer. Every Monday, sisters Rachel DeMolfetto and Cynthia Sansone open their business, Racine Salon & Spa in Islip, New York, to provide their services free of charge to people enduring cancer treatments.
After witnessing the emotional difficulties that their mother, Mildred DeMolfetto, suffered during her struggle with breast cancer, Rachel and Cynthia started opening their salon in 2003 once a month to help ease this pain in others. The services they now offer every Monday to cancer patients lead to a marked improvement in their appearance and makes their self-confidence soar, which empowers a return to normal activities. Many are able to rejoin the workforce much sooner than without these services.
Due to their efforts and the publicity generated by the 2012 HBO Oscar-nominated documentary film, “Mondays at Racine”, they have evolved into a full-fledged non-profit cancer support organization, and other salons in the area have joined to help in their efforts. The Long Island Beauty Ball, which was held on Monday, October 30th, was a showcase networking event to support the Mondays at Racine Foundation. Leaders in all industries came together to support and elevate cancer care on Long Island. 100% of the proceeds will go directly to support men and women in need of ancillary oncology.
