The month of October is devoted to Breast Cancer Awareness. It is a cause that is near and dear to the hearts of the withinUs Team, and is the reason we started the ‘withinUs To Give' campaign.
We would like to introduce you to, Jennifer Kelly - a loyal customer, TruSupporter and TruSurvivor. Jennifer shares her story of resilience, and survival, and also how withinUs TruMarine™ Collagen helped her through recovery and continues to heal her every day.
In 2015, at the age of 33 I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. I was very lucky I caught it as early as I did, as I had I had an extremely aggressive form, and there was no history of Breast Cancer in my family. After undergoing a double mastectomy, 21 rounds of chemo, (8 incredibly aggressive sessions, the rest maintenance), and two breast reconstruction surgeries, I can happily say I am Breast Cancer free. After being diagnosed with something so shocking at such a young age, and losing all my hair, eyebrows and eyelashes, (as many of us do during chemo), I wanted to start incorporating something into my routine to help with my hair growth. I spent a lot of time researching different ways to stimulate it, and I had heard about withinUs TruMarine™ Collagen through my research. I loved the fact that it was a local company, and that it gives back to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. Armed with the info I had discovered, I approached my Oncologist to get his seal of approval for me to start using it - and it was given. After only two months, my hair growth was incredible. I can say without a doubt that using withinUs TruMarine™ Collagen has helped my hair return in record time. It is thicker, and shinier than before, my lashes are long and full, and I receive compliments on my skin and nails regularly. I use this product daily, it’s one of the best things I’ve done for myself. In addition to the exterior benefits, I feel incredible on the inside. I would, and do, strongly encourage anyone to use this product, it’s like magic.
