The healing power of the beautiful

Every Woman's Beauty is her Defense Against Cancer
By: Jackie Clark

Facing a cancer diagnosis or cancer treatment can be extremely scary, and can leave any woman feeling scared, hopeless, and anxious. There are countless unanswered questions that accompany cancer diagnosis and treatment, and facing the battle can require courage many women are unsure they actually possess. However, every single woman does have the courage and drive required to face a cancer diagnosis, and one way that a woman can feel stronger and more assured in herself is by appreciating her own beauty.

Naturally, cancer treatment can have serious implications on a person's appearance. Chemotherapy often leads to hair loss, and other side affects of treatment may change a woman's appearance in other ways as well. Women who are going through cancer treatments must recognize their own unique beauty, instead of focusing on the changes that the treatments might create.

Women should always dress in a way that helps them feel confident and self-assured. This is especially important for major days, such as days when a woman is going in for treatment, or a day that she might be feeling especially nervous and upset about her condition. Wearing favorite articles of clothing that highlight a woman's beauty is a great way to help women feel more confident and better about themselves.

One idea is to purchase a piece of jewelry or accessory that a woman finds comfort and beauty in. For example, a necklace or a scarf that has a powerful symbol could be an excellent choice. Every time she begins to feel lost or sad, she can touch her necklace or scarf and find strength in it. Additionally, if she's wearing a favorite pair of shoes or outfit, she can always enjoy the extra feelings of confidence she has from her best articles of clothing, and can use the added confidence as strength and motivation in fighting cancer.

There are a number of different types of cancer that women might face, from lung cancer to skin cancer, to mesothelioma. No matter what type of cancer a woman is fighting against, treatment can be enhanced by going into it with a confident, positive outlook, and finding ways to have women feel better about themselves is a great way to increase the effectiveness of treatment. Women should take steps such as purchasing a new article of clothing or accessory, taking time to do their make up in a way that compliments their face, or sporting the latest fashion trend, in order to feel the most confident. Each woman is different, and should take steps to feel beautiful accordingly. No matter who it is, every woman enjoys looking and feeling her best, and when that happens, it can help give her confidence to beat cancer.

The healing power of feeling beautiful.
