Em­pow­er­ing Can­cer Pa­tients In­side-out

Can­cer treat­ment can re­ally take a toll on a woman’s body im­age, trans­form­ing the way she sees her­self and her con­fi­dence dur­ing this es­pe­cially sen­si­tive pe­riod. She loses her hair, her eye­brows, her eye­lashes and her body is dras­ti­cally af­fected by chemo­ther­apy’s harsh side ef­fects. In a cul­ture where can­cer is still ta­boo, women un­der­go­ing treat­ment fear be­ing de­fined by their sick­ness and it af­fects their self-con­fi­dence when they don’t rec­og­nize the per­son look­ing back at them in the mir­ror. To make their jour­ney eas­ier and help them re­gain their self-con­fi­dence dur­ing treat­ment, Roula Karam Face Cou­ture, One Wig Stand and L’oréal Le­vant have joined ef­forts to or­ga­nize “Jame­lik bi Ouwtik”. The event will pro­vide pa­tients with prac­ti­cal beauty and fash­ion tips un­der pro­fes­sional guid­ance while also shed­ding light on other valu­able resources to em­power them dur­ing this pe­riod. “Jame­lik bi Ouwtik” aims to em­power pa­tients and shed a new light on how they may har­ness their in­ner strength in the face of a can­cer di­ag­no­sis, re­mind­ing them that they are beau­ti­ful no mat­ter what they may be go­ing through.
