Soap and glory for Irish entrepreneur Deborah Neill
We’re always on the lookout for new, innovative, and most importantly helpful products to add to our growing catalogue. A new addition to our site is Deborah Neill Handmade Soap, beautiful handmade soap created by a cancer survivor to help soothe irritated skin that has been affected by cancer treatment.
Here, soapmaker Deborah recalls why launched her handmade soap brand and why she recommends her soaps to fellow cancer patients:

Living with cancer can be challenging, but with our new Community Offers page, you’ll be able to find extra help and support
Life with Cancer
Living with cancer isn’t always easy. In fact, it’s rarely easy. Many people struggle with a range of different symptoms and side effects, both physical and emotional.
In addition to making you feel unwell, living with cancer is expensive! Even if you live in a place with public healthcare (like the United Kingdom or Canada), the costs of travel, meals, and special accommodations during treatment can add up quickly. If you live in a country with privatised care, the costs can be even more staggering.
You might also find that living with cancer can be – frankly – a little boring. Frequent hospital visits, recovery days at home, and long chemotherapy sessions can all begin to feel tedious. Many people miss seeing friends from work, or feeling able to go about their daily lives as usual.
As the saying goes, if you want something done right, do it yourself!
Well, that’s exactly what we’ve done here at Live Better With. Over the years, we’ve curated a great selection of hats, turbans and headscarves and we’re always on the lookout for new excellent headwear options.
We receive tonnes of feedback and suggestions from customers every day about styles they love, fabrics that feel best on sensitive skin and the most affordable prices. Taking that all into consideration, we’re excited to announce that we have designed and created our very own luxurious and feminine headwear range inspired entirely by our cancer community.
Meet HeadWrappers – a charity giving free support, advice and gorgeous headscarves to anyone experiencing hair loss as part of cancer treatment.
What does Headwrappers do?
Often the aftercare for people who lose their hair during chemotherapy or other cancer treatments can be quite basic. You might get a wig or a hat, but most people are unfamiliar with how to style this new headwear so that it feels flattering and comfortable. HeadWrappers aim to change that, by sharing their knowledge of scarves, hats and hairpieces as an alternative to standard wigs.
