“We’re grateful to Woodhouse Spa for their efforts to help cancer patients live without unnecessary stress and stay focused on what matters most — treatment and healing,” said New Day co-founder and president Gina Kell Spehn. “It’s a reminder that they are not alone, and people care. The Color of Wellness events are a gift for the patients and caregivers we serve.”

“Our goal is to create a fun event that families can participate in while creating more awareness for this wonderful foundation that helps so many local families who are facing cancer,” said Woodhouse Day Spa owner Anju Brodbine.
