Cinco Vidas FAQs

1. What is Cinco Vidas?
A lifestyle brand of products and services, Cinco Vidas provides expert resources and safe solutions to those going through side effects from chemotherapy, radiation, or medications, or who experience skin conditions like eczema, rosacea and chronic dryness. With the goal of fostering prevention and encouraging change, the organization also works to increase awareness of potential carcinogens in food, personal care products, and the environment.

2. Does Cinco Vidas work with doctors to provide medical advice?
Though Cinco Vidas does have a medical advisory board and provides a robust resource of well-researched material on a variety of skin conditions and cancer-related issues, neither the company, advisory board nor Britta Aragon provides medical advice, diagnoses, or treatment. Always check with your doctor before making any changes that might affect your health.

3. How do I get a copy of Britta’s book?
Britta’s book, When Cancer Hits, is available on this site, and at Amazon. You have the option of purchasing a hard copy or an e-book suitable for devices like Kindle and Nook.

4. This site has made me more aware of toxins in my products. Where do I find safer products?
Britta has put together a list of places known for selling products made with safer ingredients. See her post here on the topic, or buy a copy of her book, which has the resources listed in the back. You can also get a free copy of four wallet-sized Ingredients to Avoid cards by subscribing to our newsletter, which will help you shop for safer products in a store near you.

5. We’d love to have Britta come and speak at our next event. Is that possible?
Britta enjoys spreading the word about safe self care and about her journey through cancer. To find out if she might be available for your event, please contact us.

6. I have a story I think you might be interested in for your blog. Can I send it to you?
If you have a story you think would benefit our readers about a great cancer organization, an upcoming event of interest to those touched by cancer, or a person who’s making a big difference to those with cancer or difficult skin conditions, please contact us with the details. We will review the information and get back to you if we feel the topic fits with Cinco Vidas’ mission.
