Jenyse White: My Story 

"My name is Jenyse White, I am 46 years old and was diagnosed with breast cancer in October 2015. I have been married to my husband, James, for 25 years and am a very proud mother of 3 amazing boys, Chase (28), Cameron (23), and Dilyn (18). I am a realtor and also a Beautycounter Consultant.


On October 26th, 2015, I was diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer. I have no family history of breast cancer or any cancer for that matter and never thought at 44 years old that I would be fighting cancer. I did my research, advocated for myself, pulled up my boot straps and faced it head on. After 7 surgeries, 6 rounds of chemo, and losing my hair, I am proud to say that I have been cleared by my doctors. I am now a 2 yr survivor.

 

But before I decided on a treatment plan I looked into doing a combination of medical and natural treatments. So during my medical treatments i used several natural supplements and other treatments in addition to the medical. I also did research and found that so many of the products that we use, contains chemicals that mimic estrogen which my cancer was estrogen positive so the tumor fed off of my own body along with anything I put on or in my body that mimics estrogen. In doing further research on the personal product industry I found so many things we use daily contain very harmful chemicals, so that’s when I switched all our skincare, my makeup, shampoo, deodorant, etc. the one thing I was lacking was perfume. Then I stumbled across Skylar. After ordering and trying the samples, I was 100% sold. I absolutely love what Skylar stands for and love their products. I decided after I was done with my treatments that it was going to be my mission to help educate as many people as I can, but especially breast cancer patients and survivors, about the personal product industry."
