Last year one of my closest friends had the first cancer scare in our click. I am happy to say she has beat the cancer and in love with her new breasts. She definitely needs a girls trip to celebrate life, something important for us women.  The Five-star Seaham Hall now offers Cancer Touch Therapy.

The summer girls only trip is in the planning at the award-winning spa at Seaham Hall – a boutique hotel overlooking Durham’s glorious Heritage Coast – is Cancer Touch Therapy.  I am so happy that hotels like the Seaham have starting offering excursions like this.  My friend and I both need some pampering.

Have you have been scared for your best friend after she tells you, she has cancer.  For one thing I am now obsessed with checking my breast and living a healthy life.  Which I found out does not always help.  My friend is a Whole Foods and yoga junky.  Just shows cancer does not discriminate.

The hotel works together with Made for Life Organics, Cancer Touch Therapy offers a selection of soothing spa treatments that are suitable for anyone undergoing cancer treatment (plus those supporting them), and for those who are recovering from or living with cancer. Made for Life Organics, part of the Made for Life Foundation, was the first UK skin care company to achieve 100% organic certification across the entire collection from the Soil Association. Every product has been made by hand in Cornwall using organically-cultivated herbs, flowers and oils, ensuring that they provide relief to even the most sensitive and sensitised skins.

The aim of the Made for Life Foundation is to provide support for those going through cancer – and their carers – and to educate spas and therapists on how to deliver safe and nurturing spa treatments to clients at any stage of cancer.  Their programme has been developed in liaison with oncologists, surgeons and Macmillan Cancer Support.

Spa Director Davina Hassell comments: ‘I’m delighted with the very comprehensive training we have received from the Made for Life team. We’ve already been overwhelmed by the response from cancer-sufferers, and those in recovery, who have previously been turned away from other spas.’

After reading what’s on the menu of treatments, this is just what the doctor ordered. What a lovely way to relax and catch up with your besties, after a long year of giving support, hand holding and singing we made it!
