32 year old, Mummy, Leah Singh, who celebrates her birthday today shares her inspiring story @blessedwithcancer

 

A mother to a beautiful 5-year-old girl and a successful make up artist, 32-year-old Leah Singh was living a full and vibrant life until receiving some devastating news. On 2nd August 2019, her world came crashing down as she was diagnosed with an aggressive Grade 3 type of breast cancer, but what she has done throughout her cancer battle is truly inspiring!

 

 

During her time fighting breast cancer, whilst undergoing debilitating treatment such as chemotherapy and radiotherapy, Leah made a succession of vlogs documenting her journey. These video diaries soon became a huge hit and have inspired countless cancer patients and friends and relatives of those going through the same battle.

 

 

 Leah told us: “It’s difficult to explain, but I am very in tune with my body and last year I could just sense that something was wrong. When I was diagnosed with an aggressive form of breast cancer I was terrified at first but there was no time to be scared as it was all systems go straight from the off. It was a whirlwind and immediately I was booked in for hospital appointments and treatment.”

She continued: “I decided early on that I wanted to document my journey in order to help others understand what it’s like for someone going through a cancer battle. I documented my feelings and everything that was happening, including shaving my hair off on video. I decided to call it Blessed With Cancer as it has made me stronger and given me the chance to help others.”

Following her diagnosis, Leah underwent an intensive 12 week course of chemotherapy, inducing a premature menopause, so decided to eat healthy plant based food — as well as meditating, taking cannabis oil, special teas and a cancer diet from chef Danny McDonnell.  At the beginning of her treatment, she went to the gym every day and climbed Snowdon for charity — being part of the first group to make it to the top of the mountain. 

 

 

 

 

 

Leah explained: “I decided to live as healthy as possible but most importantly, I think a positive mental attitude was a crucial in helping me get through the cancer battle. I was very lucky that we had caught the cancer early and the lump in my breast had disappeared after four weeks, but I needed to complete the treatment and the chemotherapy became quite horrific — really nasty.”

At times, the powerful chemotherapy became unbearable for Leah, but fighting for her life, remaining positive and her commitment to helping and inspiring others through her vlog kept her going. Leah also told us that having support from friends and family is a vital factor in helping to get you through it.

Leah said: “It’s during a difficult time like this that you find out who your friends are — people can be so kind and supportive. I made sure that I remained positive at all times and had positive people around me — I think that was a huge factor in my survival, the same way fear and negative energy lowers your vibrations and can make you ill.”

Everything you need and more!

I highly recommend this product! I used the oil and the balm myself as well as the oil in my makeup kit. It meets all your skin care needs, it’s gentle, it’s kind and norishes.

Best product I’ve used

After having my children my skin took a turn for the worst I almost had acne all over my jaw,it was sore and really knocked my confidence.
After trying countless products I started using the secret weapon serum a few years ago which dramatically changed my skin for the better.
I now use the balm and the hyralronic serum together and I couldn’t recommend them more

It’s just amazing!

Been using this now for about 2yrs and I can honestly say I don’t think I could ever be without it. Nothing compares. It’s really helped even out my skin tone and I’m prone to dark patches. Love it!

Calming

I have an autoimmune condition which causes a fleeting butterfly-shaped redness across my nose and cheeks. My skin is also very very sensitive, especially in those parts and dry. I suffer from oiliness which is due to dryness. This serum has really helped. I used the limited at first as I am acne-prone but it was not hydrating enough for me. I use this alongside the hylauronic serum and the balm and I am so happy with the results. My skin isn’t oily, is calm and comfortable. I get the odd spot but I don’t mind those so much, as long as I’m not itchy I’m happy! (Left picture is before I started using this - it’s likely that my rash has faded somewhat due to health fluctuations but the serum has helped it along for sure!)

My skin journey

I have to admit to being a beauty products junkie. I adore trying new products and seeing first hand results. I started using limited edition serum as I was suffering badly with acne at the start of lockdown back in march /april. I can honestly say, i have results within a week. I continued to use the serum & then thought i would try the cleansing balm. I love a balm and a make up remover. It is so gentle, smells heavenly & takes the most stubborn mascara off! Ive been using for a year almost, and i have never been so confident in my life. My skin glows, which means my confidence shines. 💕💕
