About

Look Good Feel Better is a program that uses licensed cosmetologists to teach women how to deal with the appearance related side effects of going through cancer treatment. Help women be there best self as they move through this journey. Specific training is required.

Being diagnosed with cancer can be overwhelming, and cancer treatments often change the way someone looks and can affect their self-esteem. We can help people regain their confidence and self-esteem through the Look Good Feel Better program!

In a supportive group setting, patients learn simple beauty techniques to help manage the appearance-related side effects of treatment. They also have a chance to talk with other cancer patients going through similar experiences. Program volunteers make a difference, and really help patients look and feel better.

We need your unique skills and training as a licensed cosmetologist to conduct workshops. We also need caring people to coordinate and assist during classes. Will you help by becoming a Look Good Feel Better volunteer?
