“LOOK GOOD…FEEL BETTER” SCHEDULED FOR CANCER PATIENTS

Garrett County Memorial Hospital and the American Cancer Society will hold the next Look Good…Feel Better workshop on August 15 from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. in the Hospital’s Board Room.

The workshop is designed for individuals undergoing treatment for cancer. Look Good…Feel Better is a free, national public service program dedicated to teaching women and teen-age cancer patients the techniques to help restore their appearance and self-image, and how to deal with the sociological side of effects they experience during treatment. This workshop is conducted with the help of volunteer cosmetologists and includes a 12-step skin and makeup program. Cosmetics for the program are provided free of charge courtesy of the American Cancer Society, The Cosmetics, Toiletry & Fragrance Association Foundation and the National Cosmetics Association. Demonstrations in the use of wigs, hats and turbans are also given. The program is offered free and each participant receives a free make up kit valued at $250. For those who cannot attend a workshop self help materials including a video and instructional booklet are available. To register or obtain more information contact Bev Rasel at (301) 533-4366.
