Feel Your Best while Battling Breast Cancer

Look and feel your best during breast cancer

October is Breast Awareness month and any woman going through treatment will tell you that their normal beauty routine takes a back seat. But that doesn't mean you can't look and feel your best.

Sarah Golbeck is a mother of 4 from Bonney Lake, Washington. Last year, while pregnant with her fourth child, she discovered a lump on her breast that kept growing. After telling her doctor, and giving birth to a healthy baby girl, she was diagnosed with stage 3 aggressive invasive ductal carcinoma.Sarah finished chemotherapy in January, had a double Mastectomy in March and because she is BRCA2 positive, she needs more procedures to prevent Ovarian cancer. 

Sarah is 35, an age where many women find their stride with their beauty routine and style. Seattle style consultant Tannya Bernadette showed Sarah ways to look and feel her best during treatment. 
Plush offers fleece insulated leggings to keep warm. They're trendy and comfortable as opposed to living in sweats and tees. The cardigan sweater is by M Made in Italy, both found at Divalani Style.
There is a link between cheap cosmetics with parabens and breast cancer. Consider switching to a more natural line such as Thrive, a Seattle company which donates products to breast cancer patients in need. 100% of the profits from their Breast Cancer line go to support patients. 
Finally, make accessorizing easy with Ellen Tracy Eyewear, which donates to the cause, as well as Chamilia jewelry.
As far as Sarah's fight goes, she says: "I will remain positive and stay #sarahstrong. I have the best husband, kids, parents, family, friends and support team and I fight for them."
