Challenge

Cancer treatment is very intense and the patient then experiences the painful body or its alteration : fragile skin, hair and eyebrow loss, weight... This leads to a great psychological/emotional fragility, and by repercussion to relational difficulties with parents/siblings/children.

Solution

Socio-aesthetics care can prevent and relieve the undesirable effects of treatments (compatible skin creams, wigs, eyebbrows reconstruction), enhance self-esteem, relax and comfort. When familiy is involved, the bonds can be maintained or recreated (through massage exercises...). Our help, thanks to you, will help support all and each of the patients in the service.

Long-Term Impact

Less medications, better psychological and emotional strengh, better relations within the family and avoid psychological long terme effects ; facilitate reintegration (professional, friends...).
