With the holidays less than a week away, it is easy to freak out if you haven’t finished all your gift shopping. It’s tricky and perhaps a tad stressful when you don’t know where to begin, especially if its for a family member or friend fighting cancer. What can you get that will make her feel better yet at the same time be of benefit during her treatment period?
Don’t let your cancer treatment deter you from enjoying the upcoming holiday season and all the tasty foods that come along with it. True, eating may not be a priority if you’re feeling particularly nauseous, but you do need to stay nourished to fight your cancer. With a little extra care and attention to what goes in your plate, you should be absolutely fine and enjoy any meal during this festive season!
On Sunday October 19th, the central galleria at City Centre Beirut was a-buzz with crowds of people who had come from across Lebanon for one unified mission: to make the cut and donate their hair for women fighting cancer. Women, children, and even men, lined up for this opportunity to donate 20 centimeters (and the majority more!) of their hair at the hands of twelve talented stylists who were offering free cuts and styling on this special occasion.
OCTOBER is the international Breast Cancer Awareness month and what better way to show your support for women fighting cancer than by donating from your own hair to help them cope better with the harsh side effects of chemotherapy?
One Wig Stand in collaboration with L'Oreal Professionnel are organizing a special hair donation event at City Centre Beirut, teaming up with top L'Oreal hair stylists for an afternoon of free cuts and styling for all who wish to donate.
More than a year ago, Angelina Jolie revealed in a heartfelt letter to the entire world that she’d had a preventative double mastectomy because she carried a genetic mutation that increased her risk of developing breast and ovarian cancer. You may not know this, but genetic testing for BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutations has been available in Lebanon for almost 5 years now at select hospitals and clinics within Beirut. With interest in it recently increasing (Angelina no doubt played a big role in this), more and more women are now asking about it. What do you need to know before considering the test?
