For cancer survivors, Walgreens offers balms, and beauty to help in the healing

Becky Halstead says the Walgreens beautician who gently taught her to draw on the eyebrows chemotherapy stripped away, helped her to feel normal again.

“It made a big, big difference in being able to look in the mirror and see somebody I recognized,” said Halstead, 51, who lives with her family in Flagstaff, Arizona, and is battling breast cancer for a second time. “It seems silly to focus on eyelashes and eyebrows, but the way I felt after, it’s not silly at all….I could go out to dinner and not feel like a patient. I could actually go out to dinner with my husband on a date and feel like a wife again.”
