D'Amour Center to host 'Look Good ... Feel Better' programJuly 9, 2012
SPRINGFIELD D'Amour Center for Cancer Care, 3350 Main St., will host the American Cancer Society's Look Good... Feel Better program from 4 to 6 p.m. on July 23.
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.
Participants should register at least one week before the session. To register, call Sara Mutch at 493-2155.
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 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.
