Programs: The foundation delivers a nationwide program, look good. . . Feel better, that offers free services, including workshops for women and teens coping with cancer treatment, to provide information on skin care, make-up application, and advice on dealing with hair loss and nail care. A website and educational information is available for men.
I was asked to fill in as a volunteer for one of the look good feel better programs. Having never done it before, i wasn't sure what to expect. However, It felt so good to be able to help a group of women battling cancer to feel better about themselves. These women have lost their hair, their eyebrows, and their confidence. Showing the women neat makeup tricks, helping with wigs, and sharing stories, helped take away their insecurities.Its a wonderful experience!
