|SPRINGFIELD D’Amour Center for Cancer Care will host the American Cancer Society’s Look Good ... Feel Better on Sept. 26 from 4 to 6 p.m., at 3350 Main St. |
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.
Registration is required by calling 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 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.
