Piedmont boutique offers products, services for those with cancer diagnoses

The Beautiful You Boutique at Piedmont Athens Regional Medical Center.

At first glance, the Beautiful You Boutique at Piedmont Athens Regional Medical Center might appear to be like any other retail clothier. 

But while most boutiques offer fashion and flair, Beautiful You offers much more — compassion, recovery, dignity and confidence to those experiencing cancer diagnoses. 

Opened in December 2018, Beautiful You is part of the hospital’s Cancer Support Services and provides a comfortable and relaxed environment offering products for women (and men) including mastectomy products, wigs, hair and skin care products, and lymphedema garments to cancer patients.  

The boutique is located in the main lobby at Piedmont Athens Regional’s Medical Services Building on King Avenue and is open from 8:30 a.m. until 2 p.m. Monday through Thursday. 

Joel Siebentritt, Piedmont Athens Regional’s manager of Cancer Support Services, said Beautiful You not only provides products and services to cancer patients but the boutique is also a critical facet of recovery.
