California Teens Battling Cancer Get Prom Makeover From Salon

A group of California teens battling cancer got a special prom makeover on Friday, April 10.

According to Fox5, Rico’s on 3rd salon in Chula Vista, California gave a group of 30 girls, all diagnosed with some form of cancer, complimentary hair and makeup services.
