Hiatus Spa + Retreat is offering a 20 percent discount to clients booking an essential service as a Spa for a Cause service. Then 20 percent of the purchase price of that Spa for a Cause service will go to the Peabody Fund: Cancer Vaccine Project. The Peabody fund is for Hiatus founder Kristin Peabody. She and nine other cancer patients are participating in a trial for a cancer vaccine at the University of California San Diego. The participants need to raise $1.1 million by Nov. 31 for the trial to take place.

You can book a Spa for a Cause service at Hiatus Spa + Retreat is at 1611 W. Fifth St., Suite 155.
