While Winning Cancer Battle, Kathy Pride Opens “Wigs and Beyond”
I’m 62 years old and was a successful hairstylist for 40 years until March, 2013 when I was diagnosed with stage 4 metastatic bone cancer with only months to live.
Seeking treatment elsewhere, I found hope from an oncologist at the University of Colorado Anchutz Cancer Center. There I endured almost a year of chemotherapy – once per week, 3 biopsies (one revealed that the cancer most likely started in my breast), and 3 rounds of radiation. I’m blessed to say that exactly 2 years later, I’m continuing to win the battle over cancer. Many say this is a miracle, including my medical team, as I stay active with my 3 children, 2 son-in-laws, 5 grandsons, and my wonderful husband; go to the gym 4 days per week, and most recently opened a new business – Wigs and Beyond.
Due to all the treatment I have received and still am receiving, I have a full understanding of how traumatic it is dealing with hair loss. Even women who don’t have cancer find its devastating when they are losing hair or when it becomes very thin. Besides finding the right headwear to boost a woman’s confidence, I can offer encouragement, inspiration ,and even hope.
We have partnered with Trendz Boutique along with Unique Touch Skin Care in Southwest Littleton, providing a fun and caring atmosphere. Throughout the year we host Indulgence Nights, Fundraisers, and Special Events to help support our community and even individuals. My goal is to give everyone a great experience and hopefully develop new friendships. Also, if anyone is unable to leave their home or isn’t ready to get out, I am able to provide in-home services.
We are located within Trendz Boutique at 10143 W. Chatfield Ave. Suite #13, Littleton, Colorado 80127. I can be contacted through email: katpr320@gmail or by phone: 303-995-3314.
