Community Medical Center offers March Look Good Feel Better workshop

Toms River, NJ—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 program will take place on Monday, March 20 from 10 a.m. to noon at the hospital’s Inspiration Boutique.

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. For more information, or to sign up, call 1-800-227-2345.
