‘Look Good…Feel Better’ Program presented

By On Deck Staff

The “Look Good…Feel Better” program will be hosted by Cape Regional Medical Center on March 2 at 9:30 a.m. in the Thomas and Claire Brodesser, Jr. Cancer Center.
“Look Good…Feel Better” is a community-based, free, national service that teaches female cancer patients beauty techniques to help restore their appearance and self-image during chemotherapy and radiation treatments.
Volunteer beauty professionals lead small groups, usually consisting of 6 to 10 women, through practical, hands-on experience. Women learn about makeup techniques, skincare, nail care, and options related to hair loss such as wigs, turbans, and scarves.
Each group program participant receives a free kit of cosmetics for use during and after the workshop.
For patients who are unable to attend a group workshop, a free, one-time, individual salon consultation with a volunteer cosmetologist may be available in their area. These trained beauty experts help each patient address her specific skin, hair, and related appearance needs.
Self-help materials can be obtained free of charge by request through the “Look Good…Feel Better” toll-free number, (800) 395-5665.
The self-help materials include a 30-minute video entitled “Just For You: A step-by-step guide to help you look good feel better during cancer treatment,” an instructional booklet, and an evaluation form.
The videotape features cancer survivors and volunteers discussing appearance-related side effects of cancer treatment, as well as detailed skincare information, “how to” makeup tips, wig information, and pointers on head coverings.
The companion booklet also covers nail care.
Pre-registration is required; call Joan Lappin, Social Work Case Management Department, at (609) 463-2295.
