GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (ABC 4)- Cancer treatments can have a significant impact on a patient’s mental and emotional well-being, as well as their physical state and appearance. These changes include hair loss, skin differences, and brittle or weakened nails, to name a few. In the midst of these transformations, which can feel difficult or overwhelming to navigate, every woman and girl deserves to feel beautiful even in her most vulnerable state.
Beautiful You by Profile, a local 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, has a mission to “Help women and girls undergoing cancer treatment look and feel beautiful.” In addition, the organization provides a “community of support, shares resource awareness, and engages with their (clients) ongoing wellness.”
