DOVER The American Cancer Society understands how important it is to look and feel your best at all times. It is especially important to be at your best while fighting back against cancer.

Look GoodFeel Better is a free program that helps women combat the side effects of cancer treatment, such as hair loss and skin changes. During a Look Good Feel Better session, trained cosmetologists teach participants tools to help them feel confident and comfortable, such as wearing wigs, tying head scarves, and drawing in eyebrows. Participants also learn to apply make-up and how to take care of nails among other beauty techniques. Each participant is also given a take home a swag bag full of goodies to make sure you continue to look and feel your best.

Losing your hair and eyebrows is a big change and many patients going through treatment suffer a blow to their self-esteem, said Becky Huff, Look Good Feel Better coordinator. Women, especially, tend to have a hard time dealing with these changes and Look Good Feel Better can help.

Look Good Feel Better workshops are at several locations in Tuscarawas County, Union Hospital in Dover, Medi-Wise Pharmacy in Newcomerstown, and Trinity Hospital Twin City in Dennison. To sign-up for this free program or receive other support, make reservations or to find out about other programs and services offered through the American Cancer Society, call 800-227-2345 anytime, day or night visit cancer.org for information.

About the American Cancer Society

The American Cancer Society combines an unyielding passion with nearly a century of experience to save lives and end suffering from cancer. We fight for every birthday threatened by every cancer in every community. We save lives by helping people stay well by preventing cancer or detecting it early; by helping people get well by being there for them during and after a cancer diagnosis; by finding cures through investment in groundbreaking discovery; and by fighting back by rallying lawmakers to pass laws to defeat cancer and by rallying communities worldwide to join the fight. As the nations largest non-governmental investor in cancer research, contributing about $3.6 billion, we turn what we know about cancer into what we do. As a result, nearly 12 million people in America who have had cancer and countless more who have avoided it will be celebrating birthdays this year.
