WARREN, NJ - The outpouring of support and offers of help from the extended Warren community to the Gallagher family has been enormous. Here is a way to help. 
 
The Diva For a Day Foundation, Inc. gives women who are dealing with a cancer diagnosis a day to rest, relax and restore.Through the program, special Divas are selected each month to enjoy a complete day of pampering, generously donated by a participating salon/spa.The Divas have a fabulous day that they will always remember.
 
Gallagher's friend Laura Nacamuli says,"Linda was a very dear friend of mine for many years.  I was actually the one who nominated her to be a Diva For A Day.  I was thrilled when I learned she was chosen and it was such a wonderful day for her!!  She struck up new friendships with many of the other divas as well as the founders. I have been so touched by the generosity of the program that I'm involved too."
 
Help support Diva For A Day
 
 
The Diva For A Day Foundation, Inc., co-founded by Peggy Matzen of Basking Ridge and Debbie Sestokas of Warren and was created to give women with cancer an escape from the day-to-day stresses they face. 
 
As Matzen explains, “When someone is dealing with cancer it is so all consuming.  We wanted to give these women a little escape from it all, a day to forget about doctor’s appointments and treatments, a day to feel special.”
 
The hope is to continue to spread the Diva For A Day program to more states and salons in order to give as many women as possible the diva treatment.   A nomination form can be found on the Diva For A Day website www.adivaday.org.  To qualify for the program, a nominee should be recently diagnosed, currently in treatment, or less than 6 months out from the completion of their treatment.
 
Each Diva receives:
 
Mani/Pedi, massage, facial, makeup, shampoo and blow-out, and a donated lunch with bouquet of flowers.
