I had already qualified as a beauty therapist back in 2003 and my specialist interest had always been skincare. Whilst I was going through cancer, I realised that there were no beauty treatments available to people like me. In fact I was contraindicated and advised against having beauty treatments until I was 5 years clear. This was something I was I determined to change.
With this in mind, I went on to train and qualify for a postgraduate diploma in oncology therapies and can now specialise in oncology aesthetics and Sparkle Through Chemo was born. Thinking back on my own cancer experience, I often felt very isolated, so I also decided to create an online community right here, so others going through the same experiences could communicate together, share ideas and ask questions within a supportive environment.
It was important to me that Sparkle Through Chemo could offer our services and support throughout the UK and in order to do this we now work with hospitals and charities and hold regular events and workshops throughout the UK.
Keep an eye out for future dates and venues near you. Chemo beauty really is everywhere.
