"I got the call and I was like really? Me? And it's special because my daughter can do it too," said Diane Silbereisen of Cos Cob.

Every mom deserves to feel loved 365 days a year and one mother celebrated Mother's Day in Greenwich in a very special way. 

"I had stage three breast cancer that appeared 4 months after a 3D mammogram that was completely normal. Thank god for my husband who found a lump way on my side, but then I had another tumor. So I had a double mastectomy and I had the heavy ACT chemo and yea, this is a much better year. I am out and about and doing every cancer walk," said Silbereisen.

After participating in the Breast Cancer Alliance's Walk for Hope, Diane Silbereisen & her daughter Jessica won the opportunity to be pampered at Becker Salon Sunday.

"Two years ago my mother had cancer too - thyroid cancer. So I try to involve myself in all of the charities like the Breast Cancer Alliance to bring help and support to women," said Becker Chicaiza of Becker Salon in Greenwich. 

"It's nice to be able to do something like this, especially since her hair is back. It just grew back in so she is excited to try to do something with it now. It was definitely a rough time for her so it's nice to get pampered especially on Mother's Day," said Diane's daughter Jessica.

Now a survivor, Silberesien wants to support others.

"I think it's really important to show the survivorship for all these women that are getting newly diagnosed. Being on the other side of the fear cycle, I can show them that they are going to be ok," said Silbereisen.
