Look Good Feel Better to hold workshops for women

The American Cancer Society understands how important it is to look and feel your best at all times, especially when fighting back against cancer.

Look Good Feel Better is a free program offered to cancer patients where trained cosmetologists teach beauty techniques.

Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Hospital will host a Look Good Feel Better program in Wellsboro 10 a.m. to noon Sept. 5.

The session will be led by volunteer licensed beauty professional, Luanne Goodwin, and assisted by volunteer, Cindy Dalton.

Susquehanna Cancer Center will host a similar workshop 6 to 8 p.m. Sept. 9, their conference room.

Participants should follow Divine Providence Hospital signage to the Cancer Center entrance.

From 6 to 8 p.m. Sept. 11, Susque-View in Lock Haven will hold a workshop.

Participants will be guided by trained and licensed professional Carol Confer, assisted by volunteer Cindy Vangorder.

Female cancer patients who participate in these classes will learn how to use make-up and skin care techniques to overcome the appearance-related effects of cancer treatment. Participants will receive a free make-up and skin care kit.

Registration is required by calling 800-227-2345.

Women with cancer have expressed that the class gives a feeling of wellness and a difference in their motivation level. They find that after applying the right make-up they can again feel good about the way they look.

Look Good Feel Better is offered through a collaboration between the American Cancer Society; the Personal Care Products Council Foundation; and the Professional Beauty Association. Classes and materials are provided free of charge to women in active cancer treatment.
