A number of women with breast cancer have shared the joy of participating in a small-scale project in southern Vietnam aimed at raising the self-esteem of patients facing the disease.

The event, with the theme “Always a Woman to Me,’ was held by fashion designer Li Lam at the Grand Ho Tram Strip, a resort in Ba Ria-Vung Tau Province, prior to Mother’s Day (May 13).

Ten women, members of the Breast Cancer Network Vietnam community, received clothing recommendations from Lam, who also made them up for the occasion.

They spent two days enjoying themselves in different activities at the resort, including yoga exercises.

The designer said she wanted to convey to the women joining the project the message that they should care more about themselves and make them more beautiful, in a manner that overcomes social obstacles and their own inferiority complex.

“Women need to look beautiful and shine in their own way in every situation,” she said.

Women living with cancer should have greater self-care than ever, she added.

Here are pictures of the event:
