Cancer Research UK has launched a brand new range of fashion and beauty products designed for women with cancer and everything on offer is gorgeous.
The collection includes more than 300 new cancer care products that patients can use to create their own bespoke hospital kits – from underwired lace mastectomy bras to swimsuits and stylish chiffon bandanas. As you may know, chemotherapy and radiation can affect your skin, hair and nails so the collection also features sensitive shampoo, moisturisers and nail varnishes.
The full range, which is now available to purchase on the Cancer UK online shopping pages, is a perfect way for friends and family members to buy safe, comforting or practical items for a loved one with cancer. And what’s more? Anyone who purchases any of the items in the collection will be helping the fight against cancer as all proceeds go towards Cancer Research UK’s efforts to beat the illness.
See some of the items below:
Underwire Lace Mastectomy Bra In Light Rose, £44.99
Amoena Verde Pocketed Swimsuit, £67.19
Hipheadwear Chiffon Bandana, £21.49
Fitness instructor Donna Kane, who has been receiving treatment for breast cancer, is one of the many women who volunteered to model and review the range before its release. ‘I think it’s fantastic that Cancer Research UK are selling cancer care products,’ she said. ‘There’s still a stigma attached to having cancer and people have said “I don’t know what to buy you”, this helps them to get practical, pretty gifts.’
She continued: ‘The swimwear is really comfortable and the quality is lovely, the good fit means it doesn’t cut into my scar. It’s also great that the money is going back to the organisation.’
Similarly, Julie Byard, head of trading at Cancer Research UK, said: ‘Whether you need a travel bag for a hospital visit, or sensitive shampoo, we hope to become a one-stop shop to help people with the side effects of treatment.’
Prices for the range start from £9.99.
