Angela - The Happy Skin Project


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. 

Tell Us Your Cancer / Chemotherapy / Radiation / or any story that involves your time with compromised skin.
It’s a combination of all treatments during breast cancer. The many surgeries and treatments were damaging to the skin. Radiation was definitely the worst for me. I developed an extreme sunburn on my chest and under my arm and this has caused a long term sensitivity feel.


How did chemotherapy affect your skin? How did you feel about your skin?
Skin was very dry (which made it kind of itchy) and sensitive. Also, I developed indented spots on my back.
Was there anything that helped your skin during that time?
Not really.


Did you feel that you had good options for your skin? Do you wish that there were more options for skincare during chemotherapy?
Not really. I feel like now there's more options. This is the importance of social media. It helps you connect with people and you can share valuable information.


Our hope is 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.
