Volunteers sought for ‘Look Good Feel Better’ program


WILMINGTON — The American Cancer Society will offer a “Look Good Feel Better” facilitator training class for licensed cosmetologists and estheticians from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 14 at the Foster J. Boyd, M.D., Cancer Center, 31 Farquhar Ave. in Wilmington.

Look Good Feel Better is a free program for women who are undergoing cancer treatment. Volunteer facilitators teach women to improve their appearance and self-image through beauty techniques designed to overcome the side-effects of chemotherapy and radiation.

During the sessions, licensed beauty professionals present makeup, skin and nail care tips. They also demonstrate how to disguise hair loss using wigs, turbans and scarves.

The program is a collaboration of the American Cancer Society, the Personal Care Products Council Foundation and the Professional Beauty Association.

The Look Good Feel Better program is hosted locally by the Foster J. Boyd, M.D., Cancer Center. Patient workshops are offered each month.

The local cancer center has partnered for many years with the American Cancer Society to bring this wonderful program to cancer patients in Wilmington and the surrounding communities, a news release stated.
