Two weeks ago, our favorite Tracy Chavez, owner of EYECANDYSF, felt a tighting in her chest that would not go away. A client and fellow stylist Jennifer decided she needed to go to the hospital ASAP.
Fast forward 2 weeks and Tracy has found out she has cancer and she needs immediate treatment. It is a rare form called Synovial Sarcoma. The protocol that has been decided for Tracy's treatment is that she will start chemo tomorrow and after three rounds of chemo, she will have an operation to remove the cancer which is currently near her heart and lungs.
Her doctor has advised her that she will be unable to work for approximately three months. There is a chance after each round of chemo she will feel well enough to go to work for a few days. We will keep you posted. While EYECANDYSF will remain opened, it will operate with limited hours until Tracy can come back full time. There will be other great artists to take care of your needs.
As you can imagine, this has come as a complete shock to Tracy and to her devoted husband Danny and their precious 3 year old daughter, Ayla June.
Over the 20 years working her craft in San Francisco, Tracy has touched many lives with her magic as a truly gifted aesthetician but more importantly, she has shared with us her genuine and kind spirit always making us feel special when under her care.
THIS IS WHERE WE ALL COME IN! Even with this diagnosis, Tracy has been at work every day trying to get as much work under her belt before she is out of commission for 90 days. Can you imagine that? While she will be going through treatment and recovery, her business expenses will STILL be there and if she misses rent, the salon will not be able to stay open.
We started this GoFundMe campaign to give Tracy's loyal and loving clients and friends a chance to help her. Please donate whatever amount you can. EVERYTHING helps: $5, $10, $20, $100, $200, $500 etc.. If we can help alleviate some of the intense financial stress Tracy is under to keep her business afloat during this difficult time, she will be given the chance to heal. The diagnosis is pressure enough.
THANK YOU SO MUCH!
