“It has been so wonderful to see our students love what they’re learning and become inspired to use that to help others,” said Campus President Shan Pollitt. “Cancer has affected our Virginia College family, too, so it is a real honor to be able to contribute to this cause.”

CSBSD™ is a volunteer event held on the first Tuesday in June. Members of the beauty and related industries in all 50 states offer complimentary services to all men, women and children who are cancer survivors, regardless of their type of cancer or when they were diagnosed. All cancer survivors are invited to participate, and for many, CSBSD™ is the only time during the year that they receive a little extra personal kindness, warm support and tender pampering.
