About Beauty Bus

Beauty Bus was founded in memory of Melissa Marantz Nealy, whose life was cut short at the young age of 28 by a degenerative neuromuscular disease. Melissa became homebound as her disease progressed. In an effort to lift her spirits, her family arranged for in-home haircuts, manicures, and facials. Melissa said these treatments made her feel "human again."

The impact on Melissa's emotional well-being was profound. She felt nurtured by the beauty professionals who provided a momentary escape from her disease. Melissa’s family founded Beauty Bus Foundation in 2009 to offer this same experience of dignity, hope and respite to other families when they need it most.

Beauty Bus proudly meets patients where they are! That could mean giving a haircut in an out-patient setting or a manicure in a social service agency. It could also mean giving a facial in a patient’s own hospital room. Beauty Bus is there to offer comfort and support. Illness and disability affects the whole family. That’s why we serve family caregivers right alongside patients. Caring for people in need is what we’re all about.
