Story

Me Again - #beautifulyou

Our mission is to enhance the wellbeing and emotional resilience of cancer patients by fostering self-esteem and renewed confidence by the provision of free beauty treatments and supportive therapies and also by offering a personalised wig-fitting service and scalp consultations.

We will offer support and care to cancer patients from the point of diagnosis, throughout their treatment and ongoing into the post treatment recovery period. We will also provide opportunity for socialization and education centred on well- being, to encourage friendship formation and peer support. The ultimate aim is to enable a patient to recognize herself in a mirror and feel that she is ‘Me Again’.

We believe that there is a great and increasing demand for the support that Me Again offers due to personal experience and informal research conducted with patient forums and patients of Wirral Breast Centre and Clatterbridge Cancer Centre. Our services are for the benefit of women diagnosed with any type of cancer and provision will be made to tailor and add events to our programme due to the demand of a particular age group or on professional recommendation as appropriate.

Our 'Me Again' beauty hub is a luxurious and supportive environment where patients will have an opportunity to relax away from the hospital environment and their tiring appointments schedule.They can sit back and relax in comfortable surroundings and receive a variety of beauty treatments, wig advice, a scalp cleanse and massage or, if they would prefer, just a cup of tea and a chat – a little bit of ‘me time’.

All of our team members are highly qualified in their field and all share a passion to support women through their cancer journey. Offering a variety of free treatments including: Wig services, hair advice and aftercare, Beauty treatments, supportive therapies, and semi permanent make-up.

Me Again will also be hosting monthly coffee mornings and well-being workshops. Our aim is to create a relaxed, friendly and informal atmosphere which will enable women to get together, to chat and bond with each other whilst having the educational and signposting support available to them. We will provide complimentary refreshments and we have engaged a variety of high quality speakers to cover subjects such as nutrition, wellbeing, body image and sexuality but hope to also inject some fun and laughter.

Each patient attending the Me Again Beauty Hub will be given a gift box which includes complimentary samples that are paraben free and are suitable for use during cancer treatment.

We hope that women diagnosed with cancer will leave our beauty hub feeling relaxed and having renewed confidence and increased self esteem.

My motivation to start Me Again was witnessing the anguish women experience in losing their hair as a result of the treatment received. Repeatedly I'm told that they hate losing their hair and they don’t recognise themselves each time they look in the mirror- their identity lost.
