What is Look Good Feel Better?

❖ Look Good Feel Better provides complimentary beauty workshops in more than 100 cancer centres across the country that teach women and teens with cancer how to alleviate the appearance-related effects of cancer, like the loss of hair, eyebrows and lashes, as well as excruciatingly dry and sallow skin. Cancer can rob a woman of her sense of self: She’s no longer the mother, sister, daughter, or friend – she’s “the cancer patient.”

❖ Look Good Feel Better workshops give these women the tools and techniques to feel beautiful and vital. In so doing, it helps restore a sense of self and renew a feeling of womanhood, however they choose to define it. www.lgfb.ca

❖ Each year approximately 99,500 women are diagnosed with cancer.
