Guest Post ...

I am more than happy to share today. Such a great reminder that cancer, as nasty as this disease is, doesn't always have to be ugly.


My name is Jackie and I do outreach for the Mesothelioma Cancer Alliance, a leading web resource for mesothelioma cancer. I was interested in seeing if you allow guest posts on your site?

I have always had a passion for fashion-from shoes to makeup, nail polish to handbags, and everything in between! Coupled with that is belief that all women need to feel beautiful, no matter what circumstances they may be facing. Women are powerful beings and WE need to realize it! Sadly, many women are hearing those devastating words 'you have cancer.' Despite a cancer diagnosis, women can still feel beautiful in their own skin. Fashion is a wonderful way to feel strong and confident. I would like to share with your audience the reality of cancer and how women can say 'YES I have cancer', but I am no less beautiful than I was before my diagnosis.

Hope you find this topic as compelling as I do. Please let me know if this opportunity interests you and I would be happy to share with you and your audience a powerful article on women and beauty.



Feeling Beautiful After a Cancer Diagnosis
By: Jackie Clark

Being diagnosed with cancer often destroys a woman’s self-esteem. However, it is important for women who have been recently diagnosed with mesothelioma or any other type of cancer to know that they are still beautiful regardless of the diagnosis. There are many different ways for women to still feel beautiful in their own skin, even while fighting cancer. In fact, fighting cancer makes a woman even more beautiful because it shows that she is a strong individual who can overcome just about anything.
Fashion and makeup play an important role in helping women, especially those with cancer, to feel good about themselves even while undergoing different types of treatment to get rid of the
cancerous cells. Mineral makeup is, by far, a popular choice amongst all women, not just those with cancer, because there are so many benefits that come along with this natural type of makeup. Mineral makeup is composed with all-natural minerals and is free of chemicals. The makeup will not irritate the skin or cause any problems, which are definitely important because women suffering from cancer do not want to have to deal with irritated skin as well.
When applied to the skin, mineral makeup brings out natural beauty. All women are beautiful in their own way and the mineral makeup only exemplifies that beauty. The mineral makeup
covers flaws and goes onto the skin very lightly while providing a natural look so that it does not even appear that the woman may be wearing makeup at all. It has been used by women to cover wrinkles, age spots, acne and acne marks, and to simply enhance beauty.
Fashion is also a way for women with cancer to continue feeling confident. Just because a woman has been diagnosed with cancer does not mean that she has to give up on dressing nicely
and caring about her appearance. Instead, women with cancer can feel good while wearing some of their most favorite and fashionable pieces. And, when a woman feels good about how she looks and has a greater sense of confidence because she feels beautiful, she will be able to get through the battle of fighting off cancer much easier than someone who is depressed and not confident at all.
