ALLENDALE, N.J. — A pair of women from Allendale devoted to beautifying breast cancer survivors are in this week's issue of People Magazine.

Jillian Rezo and Michele Bonacorte linked up after Rezo's second battle with breast cancer in 2013 to launch Beautiful Self.

Their non-profit organization helps women battling cancer accept their "new selves."

“What cancer does to the feminine ego and structure is horrible,” said Rezo, an international beauty authority for Laura Geller on QVC.

"It does all these things to humiliate and drag you down — to tell you you’re not beautiful. This is the new you and you have to figure out how to live with it."
