Faith, Hope & Love Hospital Program
This beautiful program began [agecalc birthdate=”2010-01-01″] ago; it was a fulfillment of a dream…. (Don’t underestimate or ignore the power of your dreams!)
I pictured a beautiful place within a cancer center or hospital that could offer peace or respite from the storm and chaos for those in the midst of cancer.
A place where love, pampering and safe care from trained compassionate professionals would help to lift the burden of side effects that are a part of the cancer journey.
Our mission is to help restore each person’s unique beauty and improve the quality of their life while undergoing cancer treatments.
Our first location opened in 2009 at the Women’s Breast Center, located at St. Francis hospital in Federal Way, WA and shortly after we also opened with the new Jane T. Russell Cancer Care Center, Integrative Services at St. Anthony’s hospital in Gig Harbor, WA. Both locations serve the needs of many people; patients, family members and even staff.
When going through cancer, cancer treatments and medication, the stress can take a toll on your skin, nails and hair.
Some of the side effects of Chemo and Radiation therapy and stress are:
- Red, tender skin
- Extreme dryness (Xerosis)
- Eczema and Psoriasis can flare up
- Cracks, rashes or blisters
- Scars and scar tissue
- Dark or red patches/spots
We have licensed Estheticians and Cosmetologists that are experienced and Oncology Trained. They will know how to help you with your new skin issues and can even assist in finding a wig if you have lost your hair.

Gladys, at Oncology Spa Solutions® took care of my skin after my radiation treatments for breast cancer. I was burned and blistered which I was told to expect because of my fair skin. A cancer diagnosis and the treatments that follow change your life. When I called Oncology Spa Solutions I wasn’t sure if the estheticians would be able to treat my radiation burns, but Gladys, my Esthetician was confident and was able to give relief. After my first visit my radiation burns felt better. Gladys explained the products she used were free from any harmful chemicals and she even sent me home with a soothing spray. I am totally healed now and am a regular client with her now. Thank you! A.K
As a long time recipient of extraordinarily relaxing facials by Becky and now by Gladys, I am pleased to say that they have always exceeded my expectations. Their most important function for me is to do everything possible to keep my face looking healthy and well groomed. When I settle in on the comfortably prepared bed, I simply let them take over and look at the condition of my skin to determine what needs to be done on any given visit. As they proceed, they are happy to inform me of the different techniques being applied to achieve the desired results. Throughout mysession, I feel pampered wishing it could go on and on even beyond my scheduled appointment hour. But alas, I leave on a new high because the facial as well as the pervading positive attitudes have been so stimulating!
With gratitude and appreciation, S.W
“Becky was absolutely TERRIFIC! She is so knowledgeable of her techniques and products. As I said, this was my first time and she did my hands, feet and wonderful things to my face and head!!! Her knowledge of the human anatomy was impressive. Besides that it was an extremely gratifying one on one experience. I will remember it and her for a long time.
