I have been fortunate enough to be introduced to “The Beautiful You” mornings hosted by Debbie Clayton. I was told about the generosity and care that Debbie gives to women going through the effects of Cancer from a friend of mine. I immediately was very keen to go along to see for myself as my Chemo had finished 12 months before. Yet I had to have a second Mastectomy after that in December and my husband and I had started to feel the financial strain that numerous operations, treatments and medications bring.
Generally, other places I have spoken to if you are no longer going through Chemotherapy they no longer offer support, but Debbie is different, her support goes on and on and on. After chemotherapy the stress and strain is not over for cancer patients. I also have another operation to go, but we cannot afford it right now. All this strain starts to wear you thin after a while, but when I am at the “Beautiful You mornings” it all gets washed away, we are able to focus on our creativity and enjoy a connection and friendship with others that are going through the same type situation, all though all are slightly different and we can offer each other support. It is so nice and I am sure very healing in itself.
Debbie’s life has been touched personally with cancer with the loss of her own mother and I am sure this is how she knows that Cancer patients need Love, Laughter and a Place to Release some of the anxiety and this is what she does for so many of us…
On top of that the mornings are free, and this also helps to relieve stress in itself. Debbie is like the Mother Theresa of Cancer Patients on the Sunshine Coast.
