Living with cancer is something that is undeniably difficult. A store in the UK recently opened to specifically serve this group of people. The store is located in Guy’s Hospital in London and was set up by company Live Better With and company Browns More Hair now. Both companies currently sell specific products for those who struggle with cancer symptoms. In this new store, Live Better With Boutique At Browns, products that are sold will specifically help people who are living with cancer, its symptoms and any side effects from treatment.

Wigs are available for those who undergo cancer treatments and lose their hair. In addition, patients can find mastectomy bras and breast prothesis. Besides items that helps deal with any physical changes that come with cancer and cancer treatments, there are products available that help relieve cancer symptoms such as natural balms and walking aids. In addition, there are books that help people eat and live better.

This store wants to be a place where patients dealing with different types of cancers can go to and find some sort of relief. They explain, “Whether it’s sleeping easier, relieving itching, or taking care of your dry skin, you can find everything you need to take care of yourself at our boutique.” On their opening day, they invited authors who’ve written on cancer to speak and also held demonstrations to help patients choose, fit, and wash a wig.

Living with cancer can be a very lonesome, painful journey and this store wants to create a physical place for people to come together and seek some relief.
