Feeling Beautiful While Battling Cancer
Community Medical Center offers first Look Good Feel Better workshops of 2017
A woman diagnosed with cancer has to battle not only the disease, but the
frightening changes that come with treatment. But now patients with cancer
can turn to a program that makes them feel beautiful on the inside and out.
The J. Phillip Citta Regional Cancer Center at Community Medical Center
has partnered with the American Cancer Society to host the Look Good Feel
Better Program, a free, hands-on workshop designed to help women dealing
with hair loss and skin changes from chemotherapy and radiation. The first
program of 2017 will take place on Monday, January 30 from 10 a.m. to
noon at the hospital’s Inspiration Boutique, and an additional workshop
will be held on Monday, March 20.
The free program is open to all women with cancer who are undergoing chemotherapy,
radiation or other forms of treatment. Participants will be provided with
skin and nail care, makeup demonstrations from licensed beauty professionals,
information on wigs and turbans and how to care for them, fashion tips,
a free cosmetic kit and more, all in the spa-like environment of the Inspiration Boutique.
The Look Good Feel Better program serves 50,000 American women annually
and hosts 15,000 workshops across the country each year. All programs
are facilitated and led by beauty professionals who volunteer their time
to help people with cancer to find some normalcy in a life that is by
no means normal. The program is currently seeking additional licensed
beauticians, cosmetologists and estheticians to volunteer their services.
Look Good Feel Better is a free program, but registration is required.
