Suburban Hospice Patient Gets Spa Treatment
WHEATON (CBS) – A 39-year old suburban Chicago woman whose deteriorating health forced her into a nursing home two years ago is receiving a full service spa treatment today, thanks to the kindness of others.
It is a rare day for Lisa Coughlin to leave Passages Hospice Care. Today, through a program called Hospice Dreams, Lisa is being pampered.
“Who doesn’t want a manicure and go to the salon,” said Coughlin.
Studio 209 owner Linda Fisher is donating her services.
“We all have sentimental hearts and if we can make this dream possible, this is what we do,” said Fisher.
Lisa has liver disease, her prognosis is not good. But today she is smiling, her red hair is dyed and her fingernails painted.
“Oh yeah, it definitely got me out of bed,” said Coughlin.
