A CANCER patient from Sheffield is getting her confidence back thanks to a new beauty initiative launched by a leading city charity.

Judith Davenport has added a new eyebrow kit to her make-up bag after she lost her brows due to chemotherapy treatment in her battle against the disease.

The kit was bought with funding provided by Weston Park Hospital Cancer Charity via their small grants scheme.

The grandma from Pitsmoor can now use the kit to create realistic-looking eyebrows using semi-permanent make-up.

Judith, aged 60, said: “As a woman who likes to take care of her appearance, losing my hair was something very significant to me, and my confidence was knocked because of it.

“Having the eyebrow kit from the Weston Park Hospital Cancer Charity is exactly what I need.

“It looks natural, lasts all day and is really easy to use – it’s now a part of my everyday make-up bag.

“I can’t praise Weston Park enough for the help and support they have given and continue to offer me, whether it be through a treatment, having someone to talk to or the eyebrow kit.

“I think funding new projects like the kit is a fantastic idea as it has given me such a morale boost. I would recommend the product to anyone.”

Catherine Rhone, senior fundraiser at Weston Park Hospital Cancer Charity, said: “Judith’s experience with the new kits is a fantastic example of how something so small can make a difference to everyday life for someone going through cancer.

“We need to raise £1.2 million a year – and we make every penny donated by our supporters work hard to make a real difference in the lives of patients like Judith.”
