Women with cancer can feel more like themselves

LOCK HAVEN – Women with cancer can be confident and feel like themselves this summer by attending a local “Look Good Feel Better” workshop.

There will be a free upcoming workshop for women with cancer from 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday at Susque-View, conference room B. Carol Confer will host the workshop and Cindy Van Gorder, LGFB volunteer, will assist.

Women will learn how to care for skin and nail changes and how to create the illusion of eyelashes and eye brows as well as how to cope with hair loss using wigs, scarves and other head coverings.

Call 888-227-5445 and select option 3 to register to attend.

“Look Good Feel Better” (LGFB) is a national public service program created from the concept that if someone with cancer can be helped to look good, her improved self-esteem will help her to approach the disease and treatment with greater confidence. LGFB offers suggestions and advice on dealing with the appearance-related side effects of treatment through its websites, brochures and group programs offered nationwide. LGFB is a free, nonmedical, product-neutral program offered as a collaborative effort of the American Cancer Society, the Professional Beauty Association, National Cosmetology Association and Personal Care Products Council Foundation, a charitable organization supported by the cosmetic industry.
