We’ve posted about Look Good Feel Better for several years now. Today we have some Press Releases to share with you. The more we do for others who are going through this or are in remission the better we will all be.
Look Good Feel Better Program Overview
About Look Good Feel Better:
For the past two decades, the Personal Care Products Council Foundation, supported by the cosmetics industry, the American Cancer Society and the Professional Beauty Association, has worked to give confidence to people undergoing cancer treatment through the Look Good Feel Better program.
Founded more than 24 years ago, the Look Good Feel Better program has helped more than 1.2 million people across the country and in 24 countries around the world regain confidence during cancer treatment by helping them to deal with the appearance-related side effects of cancer treatment. Workshops are FREE, available in all 50 states, and staffed by local expert volunteers that offer lessons in how to apply cosmetics and accessories that help address the changes in skin and hair loss that often accompany cancer treatment, as well as tips on wardrobe/styling to help mask weight changes and surgical alterations.
Look Good Feel Better is dedicated to changing the way people with cancer approach their disease. Reminding them that they are beautiful inside AND out. And letting them know that they can regain some normalcy in a life that is by no means normal.
