Three women undergoing cancer-related health treatments got an early Mother's Day gift Thursday after they were offered a free “pampering session.”

Vancouver's Zootz Hair Studio and Langley's House of Miss Rose supplied the three women — age 65, 60 and 23 — with a variety of beauty services.

“A lot of women can't afford wigs,” said House of Miss Rose owner Rose Adams, who donated wigs for the women. “They need something special done for them. That's why I donated the wigs, for the women to have a special day for Mother's Day.”
