Southern Ohio Medical Center and the American Cancer Society (ACS) are helping to make cancer patients feel more confident about their appearance through the Look Good…Feel Better counseling program-a national public service created by the Cosmetic, toiletry and Fragrance Association, the National Cosmetology Association and the ACS to help patients who have recently completed or are currently undergoing cancer treatment.
The program meets the second Tuesday of every month, with the next session taking place at 5 p.m. Oct 12 at the SOMC Cancer Center, 1121 Kinneys Lane, Portsmouth.
During the two-hour, hands-on workshop, attendees will participate in skin-care and make-up application lessons, proper nail-care techniques and will learn how to wear and create headscarves and turbans to mask hair loss. Each patient will be given their own make-up kit and will also have the opportunity to try on and learn more about receiving wigs through the ACS wig-bank.
Participation is free but registration is required. To register or for more information, please call the local chapter of the ACS Cancer Resource Center at 740-356-7606.
