Last Friday we welcomed Bindu Suri of Global Calgary into Compassionate Beauty to teach her about how our Centre helps women after cancer treatment. We also just debuted out new line of active-wear helping women after breast cancer surgery live in the NOW. Our clients can feel comfortable sweating in style with a selection of pocketed athletic tops and bottoms. The built-in bra securely holds one or two breast forms and provides adequate support to a natural breast. The revolutionary Comfort Plus technology helps to regulate the body’s temperature.
Our newest spring pajama styles are also shown, which are made with bamboo – a natural fibre that wicks away sweat and moisture. Cancer treatment like chemotherapy can put cancer patients into early menopause, which gives them hot flashes. Don’t freeze after your flash…wear bamboo!
2.8 Million people have watched and been inspired by this young cancer patient's song, Clouds.
The much anticipated line of ACTIVE-WEAR has arrived at Compassionate Beauty! Pocketed tops allow you work out with comfort, knowing that your breast form is held securely in place. If you have had a single mastectomy, the built-in shelf bra will give your natural breast the support and balance it needs. Tops and bottoms feature the revolutionary COMFORT + technology, which will help regulate your temperature while you work up a sweat. Choose from a racer-back or tank-style top in the season’s hottest colours. Pair your top with a great and flattering pair of black or grey capris…and you’re off to the races (literally)!

Parents who have been diagnosed with cancer often struggle with balancing their family life with cancer treatment and its difficult side-effects. So many of our clients face these challenges daily, which is why we have chosen to support the unique Kids Cancer program: Camp SunHaven.
SunHaven is a five-day summer camp run by the Kids Cancer Care Foundation of Alberta (KCCFA). The camp is uniquely designed for children ages seven to 17 who have a parent with cancer. The programs and activities help foster friendships and self-confidence in a supportive, team-based environment. It’s a place where kids can set aside their worries for a week of fun and laughter with children in similar circumstances.
Where is SunHaven?
SunHaven takes place at KCCFA’s Camp Kindle, which is situated on 160 acres of rolling pasture in the Rocky Mountain Forest Reserve. The camp is just outside the town of Water Valley, 83 kilometres northwest of Calgary and 280 kilometres south of Edmonton.
Who will look after my child at camp?
The Kids Cancer Care Foundation has a 20-year history of providing memorable camp experiences for Alberta children affected by cancer. Our camp counsellors are professionally trained and fully experienced. A fulltime registered nurse is on hand 24/7 to ensure the health and safety of campers and our low camper-to-staff ratio makes for a positive experience for all.
What will my child do at camp?
Your child will take part in a range of age-appropriate activities, from arts and crafts to hiking, archery, swimming, campfire sing songs, orienteering, high ropes course, wetland studies, survival skills and animal games.
How old should my child be?
Your child must be between the ages of seven and 17.
How much does it cost?
SunHaven is free for Alberta children who have a parent with cancer. Camp includes all meals, accommodation, transportation (to and from pickup points in Calgary), supervision and programs.
What are the dates?
Aug 5 - Aug 9, 2013
