NEW PROVIDENCE, NJ - Providing cancer patients with a few moments of unforgettable joy is the mission of the Diva for a Day Foundation. It began in 2010 when a pair of friends came together to make a worthwhile difference in the lives of those who have the disease. The non-profit organization aims to pamper and delight “divas” with a day of relaxing spa services at participating facilities.

The Program & How to Participate

At the heart of the program is a deep desire to nurture the soul and spirit. Founders Debbie Sestokas and Peggy Matzen envisioned a path to peace for cancer patients. They cultivated this idea with help from a single spaand today it spans over 50 companies across the country.

To participate, loved ones can nominate someone they know who has cancer. A diva is selected each month to relax, unwind, and release stress in the comfort of the salon. 

The Spa Services Included

The recipient’s spa services include an indulgent massage tailored to her needs, a facial formulated just for her skin type, and a manicure and pedicure to add a little fresh color to her day. A talented professional will style her hair to perfection. She’ll even receive a delicious lunch and some beautiful flowers to top it all off.

September’s Diva for a Day, Tracy, was excited to visit her local spa for some luxurious pampering from head to toe. From gentle massage therapy to the best facial in town, she received undivided attention from the talented staff—and left with memories of a beautiful day she’ll treasure forever.

Based in New Providence, NJ, Skin Deep Salon and Spa is proud to participate in Diva for a Day. Through the program, recipients enjoy a day of complete rest, relaxation, and spa services in the comfort of the area’s best nail salon. In addition to a manicure and pedicure, the diva is treated to luxurious massage therapy, a nourishing facial, makeup application, and a fabulous hairstyle to complete her look. She’ll leave with a smile—and a stunning bouquet courtesy of a local florist. To learn more about the spa’s affiliation with the program and read about each month's Diva for a Day, visit the website.
