Most women, diagnosed with cancer, experience side effect due to their treatments.
Those side effects include the loss of hair and changes in their physical appearance. Look Good Feel Better (LGFB) is a free national public service program made possible through the collaboration of the Personal Care Products Council Foundation, the American Cancer Society, and the Professional Beauty Association/National Cosmetology Association that provides women with the tools to combat the side effects of cancer.
LGFB sessions are run by volunteers who are licensed cosmetologist that have completed the LGFB certification. During the sessions, participants will be given skin care and makeup tips, nail care techniques, and professional advice on how to deal with hair loss using wigs, scarves, hats, and other accessories.
"This class is not only about learning beauty techniques, it's about meeting and bonding with other women who are going through the same journey as you," said Judy Bour. "The volunteers that teach the sessions are very dedicated to the program and they are there to insure you leave looking and feeling your best."
Look GoodFeel Better workshops are at two locations in Tuscarawas County, Union Hospital in Dover and Medi-Wise Pharmacy in Newcomerstown.
