Regional Cancer Care Center Hosts Look Good Feel Better Program

01-04-2016
Berlin, Md. – The Regional Cancer Care Center recently hosted a Look Good Feel Better Workshop for local cancer patients.

A volunteer beauty professional was on hand to provide advice on skin care and makeup application, as well as wig selection and care, how to care for dry skin and discolored nails, style tips and wearing hats, scarves and turbans.

In conjunction with this event, Lilly’s Oncology on Canvas traveling art exhibition was on display in the second floor hallway of 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.
