Kathy Scheer and Backstage Salon have helped so many of us over the years, now it’s our turn to return the favor.  Kathy will undergo a double mastectomy on July 18th.  Even though She does NOT have cancer, most of the tissue in both breasts is precancerous. To NOT have the surgery would be a guaranteed cancer diagnosis in the future. She will have reconstruction surgery immediately after the breast surgery. It will be an eight hour surgery and will be followed by a long recovery.  
Being self employed requires you to work especially in the service industry.  Insurance covers basic medical costs but additional medical costs, copays and basic necessities of life is not.  
Backstage has given us great hair but their clients know it offers so much more.  It is also a place to catch up with friends, feel better about ourselves as well as offer solace when things aren’t quite right.  Now it’s our turn to give Kathy comfort while she faces this storm.❤️
Please consider donating.  All donations will be delivered directly to Kathy.

Hi! This is Maggie…you know, Kathy’s “Executive Assistant.” AKA Her business partner.

Kathy’s surgery is in 11 days. Her spirit remains uplifted by the outpouring of support – monetarily, spiritually, physically, and foodly (new, made up word sure to be picked up by Mirriam-Webster).

I will keep you posted on the 18th with how things are going.

If you are so inclined and wish to share this campaign, we will all be deeply grateful.

Thanks seems so inadequate, but seriously, THANK YOU!

In 2014 when Kathy and her family were looking for a new home, they searched many different towns. One night, while coming home from looking at a home in Garrison, Kathy turned to her husband and said, “I have to stay in the school district we’re in. Over the years I have seen so much support for families when they need help after any kind of life event.”

And here we are, four years later.

Kathy is overwhelmed and filled with enormous gratitude for the outpouring of support she is receiving.

The emails, notes, flowers, text and phone calls are more than she ever expected.

Welcome to doing business in Croton and living in Montrose.

Hearts are big.

We will keep you updated as the time draws nearer for Kathy’s surgery.

Maggie (for Kathy)
