American Cancer Society's "Look Good... Feel Better 'Pink Tea'" hosted by Cancer House of Hope

SPRINGFIELD Cancer House of Hope will host the American Cancer Society's Look Good ... Feel Better "Pink Tea" on May 3 from 3 to 5 p.m. at 946 Plumtree Rd. in Springfield. Look Good ... Feel Better is a free program that teaches cancer patients hands-on cosmetic techniques to help them cope with appearance-related side effects from chemotherapy and/or radiation treatments. Wig care, scarf and hat use, skin care and nail care will all be discussed, and all participants will receive a free makeup kit.
During this special Look Good... Feel Better "Pink Tea" session, participants will be served tea and light refreshments in addition to hearing from local breast cancer survivors who volunteer their time with the American Cancer Society's Reach to Recovery, a one-on-one support program for newly diagnosed breast cancer patients. Registration is required, so please contact Sara Mutch at 493-2155 or Sara.Mutch@cancer.org.
Cosmetologists certified and trained by the American Cancer Society will conduct the sessions, which are non-medical and do not promote any product line. Look Good ... Feel Better is a free, supportive, informative and enjoyable first step toward renewed self-esteem, self-confidence and emotional recovery for cancer patients undergoing radiation or chemotherapy.
Look Good ... Feel Better is offered through a partnership of the American Cancer Society; the Personal Care Products Council Foundation; and the National Cosmetology Association.
