Look Good, Feel Better session set for Dec. 17

FPS staff report

A Look Good...Feel Better session will be held Dec. 17 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. at Aultman Carrollton, 1020 Trump Rd., Carrollton.  Registration is required by calling 1-800-227-2345. 

When a woman is undergoing treatment for cancer, she may lose her hair and experience other appearance related side-effects. The impact can be devastating, making a hard time even harder.

The American Cancer society Look Good...Feel Better program is here to help by putting women affected by cancer in touch with experts who will teach beauty techniques to those in this situation.

Specially trained volunteer beauty professionals lead small groups through practical, hands-on experience.  Women learn about make-up, skin care, nail care, and ways to deal with hair loss such as with wigs, turbans and scarves.  Each woman gets a free makeup kit to use during and after the workshop.  Most of all, participants share laughter and camaraderie as only women going through the cancer journey can.

No one should have to face cancer alone.  Since 1989, Look Good...Feel Better has been helping cancer survivors.
