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
