Help Cancer Patients Look Good and Feel Better

Written on December 2, 2013 at 11:13 am , by

These days, everyone unfortunately has a connection with cancer (whether it be personal, or through a friend, coworker or family member battling the disease). Though cancer takes a huge physical toll, it can also majorly impact a fighter’s inner confidence. That’s where Look Good Feel Better comes in. LGFB is a program that helps cancer treatment patients regain confidence by helping them deal with the appearance-related side effects of treatment. The charity hosts workshops in all 50 states, which are staffed by local expert volunteers who offer lessons, including how to apply makeup and accessories to address the changes in skin and hair loss that often accompany cancer treatment. A cool part to note: The workshops are free and big-name beauty brands donate the supplies for each participant to keep.

To find a program in your area, click here. If you’d like to show your support in other ways by volunteering or donating to the cause, head here for more information.

You can also checkout LGFB’s recently launched app—Beauty Mobile App—where users can upload their photo and try on different looks. The tool can be utilized to keep patients’ spirits up and their minds busy while receiving treatment.

Look Good Feel Better is dedicated to changing the way people with cancer approach their disease, reminding them that they are beautiful inside and out. For more information, visit their webpage, Facebook page, or follow them on Twitter.
