Millennium Fellowship Project: Warrior Glow
Warrior Glow is an initiative that aims to help cancer patients cope with side effects of treatment. Patients experience various side effects including hair loss and discoloration of the nails. This negatively affects their self-esteem as most of them are stigmatized and become isolated. The project aims to encourage and promote self-care. It’s a space where patients will be taught different skills that are easy to do and will be helpful in their journey.
