Program Offers Makeovers to Cancer Patients

Cancer can rob a woman of her energy and appetite, but it doesn’t have to take away her self-confidence. Look Good Feel Better is a free program that helps women manage the appearance-related side effects of cancer treatments.

Volunteer cosmetology professionals teach skin care, makeup and nail care techniques with step-by-step makeover sessions and offer other beauty advice, such as how to deal with hair loss using wigs, scarves, hats and other accessories. All participants receive a selection of products worth more than $200, furnished by The Personal Care Products Council.

Look Good Feel Better is dedicated to improving the self-esteem and quality of life for women undergoing cancer treatment. The aim is to create a sense of community, support, confidence and courage among the groups of women who attend. The program is sponsored by the American Cancer Society and Oklahoma Cancer Specialists and Research Institute.

Individual workshops are from 4-6 p.m. the first Monday of every month (adjusted for holidays) and third Monday of every other month. Dates for 2016 include Jan. 4, Feb. 1, Feb. 15, March 7, April 4, April 18, May 2, June 6, June 20, July 11, Aug. 1, Aug. 15, Sept. 12, Oct. 3, Oct. 17, Nov. 7, Dec. 5 and Dec. 19.
