Run by the Cancer Patients Foundation, the Look Good Feel Better program aims to help women, men and teens undergoing treatment for any type of cancer to improve their confidence and well-being.
In a relaxed and friendly workshop setting, under the guidance of specially trained volunteers you will be taught how to manage the appearance-related side-effects caused by cancer treatment.
Look Good Feel Better will show you how to care for your skin and apply make-up to help alleviate the physical symptoms associated with treatment.
Look Good Feel Better workshops run for two and a half hours and are much more than just about make-up, they are designed to empower you with practical tips and tricks to boost your self-esteem and confidence.
You will also be shown practical and creative ways to help with impending hair loss with the opportunity to try various wigs, turbans and headscarves.
Each participant will receive a complimentary skincare and make-up Confidence Kit to use throughout the workshop and then take home.
Over a relaxed couple of hours our specially trained volunteers will share tips about managing the appearance-related changes you may experience as a result of your cancer treatment.
You will receive a complimentary pack of skincare products which you will use during the workshop and then take home.
Look Good Feel Better teen workshops are specifically tailored to provide information for teenage boys and girls to help them deal with the appearance related side-effects of cancer treatment.
Workshops are about living your life as normal as possible. Relax, laugh, meet new friends and learn tips and techniques to deal with hair loss, skin-care problems, nutrition, fitness and other issues related to cancer treatment.
Teen workshops run for two and half hours and are available for both boys and girls between 13-19 years of age who have been diagnosed with cancer.
Workshops are free-of-charge and held in various metropolitan and country venues.
