National Retailer Opens Doors Early for Cancer Survivors this Holiday Season
ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Nordstrom will open its doors two hours early on Sunday, Dec. 11, for cancer survivors and patients to have an exclusive shopping opportunity during the holiday season.
“Holiday shopping can be stressful enough, but for people with cancer, there’s additional stress,” explained Dr. Richard Chung, MD, radiation oncologist at the Anchorage and Valley Radiation Therapy Centers. “We hope this event will lift some spirits and provide an opportunity to enjoy the holiday cheer with people that understand their circumstances.”
Hosted by the Anchorage and Valley Radiation Therapy Centers, Nordstrom’s doors will be open from 9 to 11 a.m. on Sunday for the entire cancer community, including current patients, survivors, family members, caretakers and providers. Nordstrom will open to the public for regular store hours beginning at 11 a.m.
The event will feature a complimentary brunch with workshops specific to the needs of cancer patients and survivors. Presentations include scarf-tying techniques; cosmetic tips; eyebrow and eyelash applications; and information about prosthesis products and professional bra fittings.
The event will be held in partnership with the American Cancer Society’s Look Good…Feel Better program and Alaska Regional Hospital.
