Regional Cancer Care Center To Host Look Good Feel Better Workshop


Berlin, Md. – Atlantic General Health System’s Regional Cancer Care Center will host a Look Good Feel Better Workshop on December 17, 2015 from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

During this workshop, attendees will work with volunteer beauty professionals on skin care and makeup application and will learn about wig selection and care, how to care for dry skin and discolored nails, style tips and wearing hats, scarves and turbans.

Lilly’s Oncology on Canvas traveling art exhibition will also be on display throughout the Regional Cancer Care Center and the James G. Barrett Medical Office Building.

In 1989, the Look Good Feel Better program was launched with one core belief — that helping cancer patients deal with the side effects of treatment that affect physical appearance can have an impact that runs more than skin deep. To date, more than 900,000 U.S. cancer patients have participated in the program. Medical Oncologist at the Regional Cancer Care Center, Dr. Roopa Gupta, shares “sometimes how we look outside can influence how we feel inside. This can affect one’s self esteem and body image especially for oncology patients. The Look Good Feel Better workshop is a wonderful opportunity to help women feel beautiful inside out while going through their cancer treatment.”

“The group workshop is the gold standard of Look Good Feel Better services and the heart of the program,” says program director Jeanette Rowland, of the American Cancer Society. Each free two-hour group session is conducted by a licensed beauty professional who teaches skincare, makeup, nail, hair, wardrobe and styling techniques to help cancer patients manage the appearance-related side effects of treatment.

“The transformation of Look Good Feel Better participants goes beyond the techniques that they learn in our workshops,” says Rowland. “By the end of a session, the participants have a renewed sense that they’re not fighting this battle alone. It’s funny to think that just a dab or two of makeup can change you, but it does when you’re fighting cancer.”

This program celebrates 25 years of helping cancer patients look good and feel better.
