Patients who undergo chemotherapy often lose their hair– but they can sometimes lose their lashes as well.

For Miriam Lam, a cancer survivor, lash extensions are a way to bring her lashes back.

“It gives you back some dignity, it makes you feel whole again,” says Lam.

Her friend, Gloria Mazaheri, owns Ooh La Lashes Limited, in Lititz, Lancaster County, and she provides the extensions free to cancer patients, with discounted refills.

“You could see the transformation and the self-confidence, and just how happy she was to just look normal again in her eyes,” says Mazaheri.

 Ooh La Lashes, is offering lash extensions free to cancer patients who lost their eyelashes due to cancer. They’re now working to raise money to support patients and their families . The benefit will be held on Thursday, Jan 23 at the Eden Resort in Lancaster. Tickets are $40, visit the web site or call (717) 524-7540.

The benefit will support the Pennsylvania Breast Cancer Coalition and the Four Diamonds Fund.
