BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Breast cancer patients looking for a natural burn cream to protect their skin from the effects of radiation therapy can now purchase My Girl’s Radiation Cream at oncology boutiques, all-natural stores and pharmacies in CT, MA, NY, ME, FL, GA, VA, and West VA.
“Having My Girl’s Radiation Cream available where the cream is sampled at local radiation centers and hospitals is a great convenience for cancer patients receiving radiation therapy. Our goal is to make the cream more widely available so that patients may pick up their oncology medications and also find an over-the-counter burn cream that protects their skin during radiation,” said Theresa Keresztes, founder of My Girl’s Radiation Cream.
The calendula-based burn cream reduces pain and itching and decreases inflammation that may occur as a result of radiation therapy. A recent clinical study reveals that patients receiving calendula had less frequent interruption of radiotherapy and significantly reduced radiation-induced pain.
My Girl’s Radiation Cream has won praise from cancer patients undergoing radiation therapy as it fills a void for those seeking a non-greasy, hypoallergenic burn cream that contains no alcohol, fragrance, artificial preservatives, toxic chemicals, mineral oil, petroleum or parabens.
“I had two weeks of whole-breast radiation after my boost and I used My Girl's Radiation Cream a lot. My skin looks and feels great now,” said Claudia Harbert, breast cancer patient and My Girl’s Radiation Cream user.
“All the radiation oncology nurses who work at our practice highly recommend My Girl’s Radiation Cream because of the positive feedback we receive from the patients who have tried it,” said Tracy L. Whitney, LPN, Radiation Oncology at Hematology-Oncology Associates of CNY, PC, East Syracuse, New York.
“We had several patients tell us they have been using My Girl’s Radiation Cream and we are seeing great results,” commented Brenda Tominovich, RN, Lynn Cancer Institute, Boca Raton, Florida.
“More patients are sampling My Girl's Radiation Cream because of its soothing effect on radiated skin, particularly the relief from itching,” added Lisa Gatti Whelan R.N., B.S.N., Patient Care Coordinator, Radiation Oncology.
