Emily Parker was diagnosed with leukaemia back in June of last year. However, the 21-year-old wanted to help other sufferers to “bring normality back” by setting up her inspirational beauty blog, Emily Eva Alice.
The student set up her site after she searched the internet for tips for cancer sufferers and found none.
Talking to the Huffington Post, she said: “I decided to set up my blog as I found different brands worked better when going through chemo. I found some shampoos and hair growth treatment worked far better than others and I wanted to share that.”
Emily documents losing her hair, its re-growth and her decision to wear a wig, saying: “I have my trusty wig for those days when I don’t want to think about what’s happened”
The newly qualified make-up artist does not simply write about the best skincare products to use during treatment or shampoos and conditioners to use while your hair grows back, she also talks about brush techniques, make-up inspirations and offers other handy tips.
