Oncology skincare and holistic therapy specialist, Jennifer Young, is gifting 10,000 skincare products from her Beauty Despite Cancer brand, in support of cancer patients and small charities throughout Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Ten Thousand Gifts - why we are doing it from Jennifer Young on Vimeo.
Jennifer Young is the creator of more than 300 specialist products to treat the effects of cancer treatment on the body, available through BeautyDespiteCancer.com. The organisation is asking customers to nominate their favourite small charities, hospices and cancer support groups, through which they will give away 10,000 products during October.
Jennifer said: “Everything we do at Jennifer Young and Beauty Despite Cancer, is about supporting individuals each day of their cancer experience. Reducing skin irritation and soreness, creating nurturing rituals from everyday routines and giving a sense of restoration and care are invaluable when you’re experiencing something as challenging as cancer and cancer treatment. Knowing that options are available and that you are not alone, can make a huge difference to how someone feels. The small and independent charities, hospices and support organisations are incredibly important in delivering that message of care and community, which is why we aim to provide sustainable support to them as well in the work that we do. It is important to us that the charities we help are those that reflect the experiences of our customers, and this month is an opportunity to celebrate that connected support network between products, charities and clients.”

"Thank you so much! I was so thrilled to receive my gorgeous gift and am truly amazed by the beautiful products that I have used over the last few months. The quality and luxury feel of each product is outstanding and really helped me during my chemo and recovery from surgery too."
