American Cancer Society to teach beauty techniques to patients
Look Good…Feel Better is a free program that teaches cancer patients hands-on cosmetic techniques to help them cope with appearance-related side effects from chemotherapy and/or radiation treatments. Wig care, scarf and hat use, skin care, and nail care will all be discussed, and all participants will receive a free makeup kit. The program is offered through a partnership of the American Cancer Society, the Personal Care Products Council Foundation and the National Cosmetology Association.
Cosmetologists certified and trained by the American Cancer Society will conduct the sessions, which are non-medical and do not promote any product line. Look Good…Feel Better is a supportive, informative, and enjoyable first step toward renewed self-esteem, self-confidence, and emotional recovery for cancer patients undergoing radiation or chemotherapy.
A light lunch will be provided and registration is required and should be done prior to the session by calling Sheryl at 508-963-7274.
