Company Background Radiant Sun was founded by Theresa Keresztes, a breast cancer survivor who discovered a cream made in Hungary which she used to treat her skin discomfort after she developed radiation dermatitis shortly after her breast cancer radiation treatments began in 2008. She used the calendula cream after two weeks into her radiation therapy treatments at Massachusetts General Hospital when her skin became unbearably itchy and red due to the skin side effects of radiation therapy. She later refined the cream for others experiencing radiation-induced dermatitis and today it is most often recommended by radiation oncology clinicians for helping to relieve skin side effects of breast, esophogeal and head and neck radiation. Our products have been tested in US cancer treatments centers and are recommended by clinicians for people with sensitive, overly compromised and burned skin due to radiation therapy and also to soothe the skin side effects of chemotherapy and to diminish the appearance of post-surgical wounds.
Profits from the sale of My Girls™ Skin Care support cancer research and charitable, literary, scientific research and educational measures relative to quality of life measures during treatment through My Girls Gala, Inc., our 501(c)(3). We established the My Girls Gala Inc. in 2009 to celebrate the lives of women enduring breast cancer treatments with a fashion fundraiser that was the first event of its kind in the Boston area to feature breast cancer survivors as runway models. We hope to grow our organization to fund women's cancer centers and research globally as well as other charitable, literary, scientific research and education relative to improving patient comfort and quality of life measures during treatment for cancer.
