Look Good...Feel Better® makeover sessions are offered to women currently undergoing cancer treatment. The session is scheduled from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 29, at the Heartland Cancer Center at 204 Cleveland in Great Bend.

Volunteer Look Good...Feel Better cosmetologists (all certified professionals) help patients enhance their appearance using a 12-step program developed especially for women undergoing radiation and chemotherapy. The cosmetologists demonstrate how women can use makeup, wigs, and other accessories to look like themselves again, restoring their self-image, confidence, and sense of control.
“Cancer treatments can have emotional and physical side effects, but thanks to the Look Good...Feel Better program, women undergoing cancer treatments will have the tools and information to combat these side effects and improve their self-confidence,” said Vickie Jo Miller, Community Manager of Health Initiatives for the American Cancer Society. “The program is free to female cancer patients, and attendees are given more than $200 in free make-up in a social supportive setting.”
Look Good...Feel Better is a joint, cooperative program among these collaborators: the American Cancer Society, Personal Care Products Council Foundation, and the Professional Beauty Association/National Cosmetology Association.
