The wonderful Jay with a Sweet Louise Member

Sometimes Sweet Louise Members just need to spend some time treating themselves. That’s where Jay Cattanach from Abella Beauty comes in.

Jay has been one of our Service Providers since 2011, offering facials, massages, pedicures and manicures.

“As an organisation I think Sweet Louise provides fantastic social support, friendship and networking opportunities,” says Jay.

Her treatments are specifically designed for skin that has been compromised through chemotherapy and radiation.

Often, our Members need to take time out and focus on themselves. Facing months or years of repeated cycles of chemotherapy and radiation therapy can be physically draining, and services like Jay’s are critical to our Members’ quality of life.

As one Member says “The vouchers allow me some self-indulgence without affecting my limited budget. It’s little luxuries I normally wouldn’t be able to afford.”

“I have learnt a lot from the Hawke’s Bay Sweet Louise Members. They have taught me to appreciate the small things in life. They
have become much more than clients, I think of them as part of my extended family,” says Jay.

Services like Jay’s help Members cope better with treatment and its day-to-day challenges. And it’s because of supporters like you, these services are available to Sweet Louise Members.
