So, next Wednesday, April 6 MD Anderson Cancer Center Madrid is organizing the ‘IV Cancer Beauty Care Meeting: health, beauty and special care for cancer patients’. The aim is to help people with cancer deal with the situation they find themselves in as a result of their illness and to provide them with information and practical tools to minimize both the physical and emotional effects.

MD Anderson Madrid specialists will deal with a variety of topics, among which are cancer in a couple and changes in sexuality, the importance of curing, but also of caring – about how emotions have a physical and psychological effect and how the care-giver can help, the importance of eating correctly in preventing and treating cancer, skin care for patients undergoing radiotherapy or in the final stages of reconstructive and reparatory surgery.

In addition, there will be workshops on dermo-cosmetic skin care to deal with the effects of cancer treatments, a variety of recipes to help relieve the effects of treatment in the food and cookery workshop, or stress reduction in the Mindfulness workshop, to help patients manage their emotions by practicing Full Attention.
