A diagnosis of cancer can be one of the most devastating challenges a woman faces, both physically and emotionally. Not the least of the issues she may face are the ones that can be seen by others: changes in or loss of hair, skin issues and other bodily changes as radiation and chemotherapy work to cure the disease.
Since 1989, a program called Look Good…Feel Better has been helping women face these inner and outer challenges with helpful, uplifting, compassionate classes that teach them how to make the most of makeup, hair care, clothing, jewelry and accessories to transform not only the way they look on the outside, but the way they feel on the inside.
On May 21 at 6 p.m., Good Samaritan Hospital will offer a Look Good…Feel Better class at the Center for Breast Health, located in Good Samaritan’s new Medical Office Building, Suite 200, 257 Lafayette Ave., Suffern. To register, call the American Cancer Society at 1-800-227-2345. Each participant receives a free custom makeup kit.
Look Good…Feel Better is a free, non-medical, brand-neutral, national public service program supported by the American Cancer Society, the National Cosmetology Association and the Personal Care Products Council Foundation.
