Look Good, Feel Better

The American Cancer Society has partnered with an organization called Look Good, Feel Better to help women dealing with cancer to feel better about themselves.  I cannot say enough good things about this organization.

I was lucky to participate in one of their workshops last evening.  It was at the Westlake location of University Hospitals but they have programs all across Northeast Ohio as well as across the county.

The two hours were spent discussing how chemotherapy changes skin tone and appearance.  We were given a "makeup kit" that contained everything a woman would need - and it was ours to keep - and it was all full size products:
  • Biore Cleanser
  • Oil of Olay Moisturizer
  • Avon Concealer
  • Clinique Foundation
  • Elizabeth Arden Pressed Powder
  • Lancome Eye Shadow
  • Lancome Eye Pencil
  • Lancome Eyebrow Pencil and Brush
  • L'Oreal Mineral Blush
  • Clinique Lip Pencil
  • Clinique Lipstick
IT WAS AMAZING.  And, as you can see, the products are fantastic.  But that wasn't the end of the evening.  They then spent time showing you different ways to wrap scarves for after you lose your hair - and gave me two brand-new scarves to take home.

And I'm still not done - they have wigs, too.  But they play a game of sorts.  The other participants pick out the wig(s) they think would look good on you and I brought TWO home.

This program is truly amazing.  All it took was a phone call to sign up - that's it.  If you know anyone who is either currently in treatment for cancer or just finished, this program is a must.
