Look Good... Feel Better

Cancer treatment has a devastating effect on the thousands of women diagnosed with the disease each year. With an altered appearance from chemotherapy and radiotherapy, the effects extend beyond the physical and can result in lowered self-esteem.

 

Look Good...Feel Better is a free community service program provided by the charitable organisation, the Cancer Patients Foundation Ltd., helping women manage these side effects through hands-on workshops run by volunteer beauty consultants. These qualified personnel offer practical advice for skin care, make-up, hats, wigs, and other headwear; helping to restore the appearance and self image of these women.

 

For more information on the charity and to check out their latest news, head on over to their official website here.


You can also keep up with the conversation on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. The charity encourages the sisters to talk, share and connect with the community.

 


Margaret's story

 

Margaret's story

"When tests revealed breast cancer, Margaret did everything she could as advised by her oncologist and team of health professionals to ensure a speedy recovery. 


The physical side-effects of the treatment meant Margaret failed to recognise her own reflection. When her breast care nurse flagged the possibility of a Look Good Feel Better workshop, Margaret relished the opportunity to meet new people and focus on learning new ways in which she could be in control again.


Now in remission, Margaret is thankful for the practical support and guidance offered to her. She holds on to the transformative effect of skincare, make-up and headwear that she learned throughout the workshop.


As Margaret describes: "The treatment can take away elements of yourself that make you appear not as yourself. The Look Good Feel Better program gave me the tools to feel comfortable with the changes my body went through. When you're feeling unwell, feeling better about your appearance makes all the difference."
