Cancer treatment can really take a toll on a woman’s body image, transforming the way she sees herself and her confidence during this especially sensitive period. She loses her hair, her eyebrows, her eyelashes and her body is drastically affected by chemotherapy’s harsh side effects. In a culture where cancer is still taboo, women undergoing treatment fear being defined by their sickness and it affects their self-confidence when they don’t recognize the person looking back at them in the mirror.
To make their journey easier and help them regain their self-confidence during treatment, Roula Karam Face Couture, One Wig Stand and L’Oréal Levant have joined efforts to organize “Jamelik bi Ouwtik”. The event will provide patients with practical beauty and fashion tips under professional guidance while also shedding light on other valuable resources to empower them during this period.
“Jamelik bi Ouwtik” will take place at The Smallville Hotel on Thursday, October 29th from 3pm until 8:30pm. The program will include a press conference, panel discussion with specialists and workshops aimed at enhancing a patient’s physical well-being during treatment.
During the panel discussion, which will be moderated by journalist Riwa Al-Atrash, a team of specialists with diverse backgrounds will be sharing their recommendations on how patients may better cope with cancer’s physical and emotional side effects.
Attendees will also have the opportunity to ask the speakers any questions they may have on the topic.
During the workshop section of the program, patients will benefit from customized training and one-on-one guidance by beauty and fashion specialists such that they may leave with valuable resources to take back home. During this part of the event, privacy will be maintained for the patients’ comfort. Friends and family of patients are encouraged to attend this event too for added insight on how they may support their loved ones during this period.
“Jamelik bi Ouwtik” aims to empower patients and shed a new light on how they may harness their inner strength in the face of a cancer diagnosis, reminding them that they are beautiful no matter what they may be going through.
