For the launch of our expanded Happy Skin Project we worked with both cancer survivors and cancer patients to give an in depth look into why this project and its simple goal: get quality soap (the cornerstone of any routine) in patients’ hands at no cost to them, is a vital part of better treatment and patient outcomes moving forward. We are so grateful they have allowed us to share their experience and stories below.
Triple Positive Intraductal Carcinoma Survivor and Creator and Author of My Cancer Chic.
How did chemotherapy affect your skin?
I found my skin was dry and very clear. I struggled to navigate a new skin type and find products that were safe and sensitive on my skin.
Was there anything that helped your skin during that time?
I never really found something great, I tried a lot of products but never had great success.
Did you feel that you had good options for your skin? Do you wish that there were more options for skincare during chemotherapy?
I 100% wish there were more options!!
Our hope is that this project will bring tangible solutions and awareness around the broad lack of affordable (or suitable) options for people undergoing treatment for Cancer. Our long term goal is for The Happy Skin Project to be truly impactful nationwide by providing data around better patient outcomes and lobbying for high quality body care products to be covered by insurance as a preventative measure.
