Things That Really Work

Surviving Radiation
Magic Skin Balm absolutely saved my skin during radiation. My doctor normally gave his patients Miaderm but his supply was depleted. I heard about Magic Skin Balm from another woman with breast cancer. She swore by it so I gave it a try. It works! I put it on every night before bed and wore an old t-shirt to bed. I had no blisters, no burns and very little itching. This stuff is fantastic!

Weird Chemo Hair
Are you dealing with wiry, weird, chemo hair? I got a Keratin Express Smoothing Treatment once my hair was about 2 - 3 inches long all over. I used this product before cancer to calm my naturally frizzy hair. It completely changed the texture of my unruly chemo hair.

Growing Eyelashes and Eyebrows
I highly recommend Latisse to anyone who is finished with chemo and radiation and needs a little extra help growing those eyelashes and eyebrows. I managed to hang on to a few lashes and brow hairs throughout chemo but once I started radiation, they all fell out completely. Once they started growing back, I got a prescription for Latisse from my doctor and voila! My lashes are growing and are actually LONG. I also apply it to my eyebrows to help thicken them up but still rely on a brow shadow to enhance them. Latisse is not cheap but it works. I have also heard Rapid Lash works well, too.


  1. I have a friend who survived cancer and I think she would find these things very helpful. I'm wondering though, can she use this moroccan oil hair treatment she found online or the one you recommended is specifically for cancer treated patients? Just asking.

  2. Thanks Jennifer! My sister was just asking about these issues and I sent her your post.

  3. Latisse Generic consists of a major ingredient bimatoprost ophthalmic solution and it's recommended to treat hypotrichosis.A condition wherein a person has inadequate or scanty growth of eyelashes is known as hypotrichosis.Latisse Generic helps in their growth thereby making them darker, longer and thicker.

  4. Yes agreed, latisse is an easy, even not only easy rather also an effective way to grow eyelashes. If you are willing to buy original latisse, go to any departmental store rather than nearest store which is less known.
