Beauty experts, professional cancer care experts, politicians and cancer survivors attended Mondays at Racine Long Island Beauty Ball on Monday October 26, 2015 at the Crest Hollow Country Club.
For over ten years, the staff of Racine has looked for a way to provide support and comfort to people receiving treatment for cancer. In 2003, they created the Mondays at Racine cancer care program, which provides complimentary services and supportive therapies every third Monday of the month.
At a time when few were addressing the mental and emotional impact of being diagnosed with cancer, Racine set out to attempt to offset its ravaging side effects and provide solace, integrity and support to it’s community members stricken with this disease. In that time, the program has grown to become a safe haven for patient’s emotional well being, as well as an important supportive resource center within our community. It has also helped hundreds of women deal with their affliction in a gentle and proactive way.
Co-Founder Rachel Demolfetto knew that the beauty industry was her chosen career. At the age of 26 in 1989, Rachel purchased an aesthetic salon in East Islip where she began establishing her spa career. In September 1994, she opened Racine Salon de Beaute & Spa in Islip, NY with her sister Cynthia Sansone. What began as a small operation has now grown to be a hugely successful community-driven full Spa & Salon and landmark in the town of Islip. Keeping benevolence and philanthropy close to their hearts, for the last ten years Rachel, Cynthia, and team Racine began a program to provide support and beauty services for people going through treatment for cancer. The Mondays at Racine Cancer Care Program has garnered many accolades, citations and awards. As well as the subject of an HBO Oscar nominated short documentary.
Mondays at Racine’s mission is to encourage a self-empowering, mind-body approach to treatment, in concert with traditional medicine, to ensure wellness and vitality. By attending to the whole person and not just the disease, Mondays at Racine offers people suffering with cancer the opportunity to face the challenge of healing…beautifully.
