Breast Cancer Awareness & Inspiration
Tara Bleicher could not even look into a mirror without seeing it.
Her almond-shaped eyes felt naked; the eyebrows that had once framed her face were gone and not going to grow back due to her treatment for Breast Cancer.
"I felt strong, but not quite like myself. There was something missing. It may sound silly when you are winning a battle for your life, but feeling beautiful, feminine and just being empowered to go out and look like yourself can mean everything."
That's when Tara called Stephanie Morlock, the only Certified Permanent Cosmetics Professional in this area who works right out of the Arizona Eye Institute & Cosmetic Laser Center's Sun City West office.
"My hair came back, but my eyebrows didn't. I was really self conscious about it all of the time."
Tara knew Stephanie, who is known for her "brush stroke" technique, was the cosmetic professional to bring back and even perfect eyebrows that would look real, natural and like her own.
The pair worked together to select the perfect shade and shape of her new brows. "Stephanie makes you feel so comfortable during the entire procedure!"
The same visit added a special bonus: The perfect shade and shape of upper and lower eyeliner to ensure that Tara not only feels like herself, but more beautiful than ever.
"It has helped me not feel like a cancer patient. It has helped me to focus on my health in a positive way. You cannot escape the constant reminders about cancer - on TV, billboards - at least now when I look in a mirror, I don't see a cancer patient.
"I see me."
