Volunteer assisting a cancer patient to find a wig that would be complimentary to her features.


Look Good Feel Better holds group workshops that teach beauty techniques to female cancer patients to help them combat the appearance-related side effects of cancer treatment.

Group programs are step-by-step makeover learning sessions led by cosmetology professionals using products donated by the cosmetic industry. Each two-hour, hands-on workshop includes a 12-step skin care and makeup lesson, nail care techniques, and professional advice on how to deal with hair loss using wigs, scarves, hats, hairpieces, and other accessories.

Every local Look Good Feel Better program requires well-organized, caring, friendly, dynamic volunteers to work with the American Cancer Society or host sites to help make everything run smoothly. These volunteers help organize group programs at host sites, promote participation, place reminder calls to patients, organize supplies, set up rooms, and provide assistance during the sessions.

* In partnership with American Cancer Society Staff, ensure volunteer facilitators are scheduled for each session in your area.
