The Made for Life Foundation (registered charity 1138846) was founded in 2009 by Amanda Barlow, MD of Made For Life Organics skincare company, to provide support for people diagnosed with and recovering from cancer. The Made for Life Foundation organises days filled with holistic complementary treatments, organic makeovers, nutritional advice, art therapy, meditation and relaxation techniques along with time for sharing and hugs.
A cancer diagnosis is a traumatic and life changing event, not just for the patient, but also for their family and friends.On hearing the news, people often report feeling sick, disorientated, very sad, angry, frustrated, scared, lost, isolated, in need of support and often unsure of what to do for the best.
While medical treatment may be on offer, those going through the cancer journey often need emotional and practical support in other ways.
The Made For Life Foundation offers special pamper days, around the UK, along with our workshops, talks and events. Those going through cancer, whether newly diagnosed, undergoing treatment or in recovery, can come together and enjoy a “day off” from the condition.
To date, we have worked with people for over 8 years to provide Made for Life days across the UK, supporting over 10,000 people.
Cancer Touch Therapy — holistic therapy
One of the key practical ways in which the Made For Life Foundation team helps is by offering and developing holistic healing therapies which have been developed with oncologists and our own medically experienced team to complement mainstream treatment.
