“They call her the miracle child because they weren’t expecting what happened,” Bellard smiles.

“They called me a boy,” Iliana says.

“She says it looks like a boy is getting her nails done, everybody’s going to think it’s a boy getting his nails done,” Bellard says.

“And they started laughing.

And she says I just can’t get over that she looks like a boy, and they just kept laughing about it.” She explained to a manager that her daughter had just finished chemotherapy, and that this was her first outing in public.

A statement saying in part: “We do not now, or ever support any of our employees making comments to any of our amazing clients.

We value each and every one who walks into our spa.

A cancer survivor herself, Brandy, who asked that her last name be kept confidential, agreed to take over new management duties at the spa.

“It’s not okay whether it was a child with cancer or without cancer,” Elizabeth Bellard says.

“By all means, if I get the chance to meet them and to apologize and to fix things, she will know that she is gorgeous when she walks out that door.” She hopes the Bellards will return for a free visit, and hopes to offer a face-to-face apology.
