Murad Supports Oncology Therapy Program

Murad donated 200 Soothing Skin and Lip Care and Energizing Pomegranate Lip Protectors to patients at The Thomas and Dorothy Leavey Cancer Center at California’s Northridge Hospital through Angie’s Spa. Angie’s Spa is a program established to enhance the comfort and spirit of the hospital’s oncology patients and outpatients by offering therapeutic massages and spa experiences. The lip products help moisturize patient’s lips that are usually parched and dry as a side effect to chemotherapy and radiation treatments. “As a company with strong local ties and an Inclusive Health Philosophy, Murad is delighted to work with a hospital that provides extended care services through the Angie’s Spa program,” says Howard Murad, M.D., associate clinical professor of medicine at UCLA and founder of Murad. “I am a strong believer in physical health being positively influenced by increasing mental well-being. In the case of Angie’s Spa, massage offers a perfect vehicle to support stress relief, relaxation, and eventually better health overall for cancer patients.”
