Council on Cancer Offers Appearance-Related Workshop

LACC News:

Cancer can rob a woman of her energy, appetite and strength, but it doesn’t have to take away her self confidence.

Look Good Feel Better® is a free non-medical nationwide program helping women with appearance-related side effects of cancer treatment. Workshops include instruction in skin care and makeup application; a complimentary makeup tool kit filled with donated products from the cosmetic industry; practical tips and instruction on wigs, head coverings, and nail care.

The Los Alamos Council on Cancer is happy to announce that its certified cosmetologist, LeAnne Parsons, will be offering a Look Good Feel Better Workshop 5-6 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 4 at Los Alamos Medical Center.

This workshop is open to all women with cancer who are undergoing chemotherapy, radiation, or other forms of treatment. In the United States alone, more than 850,000 women have participated in the program, which now offers 15,400 group workshops nationwide in more than 2,500 locations.

Thousands of volunteer beauty professionals support Look Good Feel Better. All are trained and certified by the Personal Care Products Council Foundation, the American Cancer Society, and the Professional Beauty Association at local, statewide, and national workshops.
