Since I was diagnosed with breast cancer, I became very aware of what I consume, not only internally but also externally. When it comes to taking good care of your body, it helps to use all-natural products. My soaps are made with a lot of love and 100% natural ingredients, including essential oils imported directly from England.
Making soaps started as a creative soothing experience, but soon became a passion. I decided to take soapmaking to the next level and initially shared them with friends, who not only used them, but soon also started making orders of my products for their friends.
What started out as just a hobby slowly snowballed into the idea of Wash Away My Cancer, a website where I can sell my handmade soaps and other handmade products not only locally, but globally to anyone!
All sales profits will go towards paying for my cancer treatment costs, such as chemotherapy, exams, and living costs while I'm unable to work to support my family.
Hi! My name is Ze, also known as Mozzaic, and I am 48 years old. I have always been passionate for arts and crafts. From mosaics to photography, to landscaping and interior design, I have lived my life surrounded by beauty and inspiring people.
After my family fled Angola during a civil war, I grew up in Portugal, where I spent my teenge years sailing and spending my free time enjoying nature and the great outdoors.
I have two sons - Miguel, who is also an extraordinary person, and a very talented artist, and 10-year old Paddy, who is also an incrdible kid, my traveling companion and my anchor.
In 2009 I began to transition to Las Vegas from London, to live the "American dream" with my new husband. In February 2012 I was diagnosed with breast cancer, and since then it has been a challenging journey towards recovery.
A few weeks after the diagnosis, my husband left without a word to never come back. I found myself in the middle of a complicated situation with immigration pending, having fallen in a bureaucratic loop-hole, whereby the free health service Medicaid has been denied until my immigration status is finally resolved.
In June 2012, my friends and family came together for a big party to raise funds for my mastectomy, which happened the following month!
I am still waiting to start my chemotherapy. As my health situation advances unlike my immigration progress, I decided to take matters into my own hands, so I launched this website to help fund the remaining treatments.
With the help of all my friends, I am positive that we can all Wash Away My Cancer!
