American Cancer Society In Collaboration With WCA Hospital Presents
Look Good Feel Better Program
For Women Facing Cancer

Jamestown, NY – (Tuesday, July 7, 2015)—Cancer can rob a woman of her energy, appetite and strength.  But it doesn’t have to take away her self-confidence.  Look Good Feel Better is a free program that offers female cancer patients in active treatment techniques to restore their self-image and cope with appearance-related side effects. Certified cosmetologists provide tips on make-up, skin care, nail care, and teach women how to cope with skin changes and hair loss by using new, donated cosmetic kits that patients are able to keep.  Women also learn ways to disguise hair loss with scarves and other accessories.

In collaboration with the WCA Hospital, sessions of the American Cancer Society’s ‘free’ Look Good Feel Better program will take place at the following locations and dates:

DATE: Monday, July 20, 2015
TIME: 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.
LOCATION: WCA Hospital Cancer Treatment Center, Conference Room
ADDRESS: 51 Glasgow Ave. Jamestown, NY 14701

“Our free program teaches women ways to help them with appearance-related side effects,” said Toni DeAngelo, R.N., Community Health and Wellness Director and certified patient navigator at WCA Hospital.  “Our goal is to create an environment where women join together in a celebration of courage, hope and beauty.  We are very excited to partner with the American Cancer Society in making women look and feel beautiful and confident on their road to recovery.  We encourage women of all ages to experience our workshop how they can apply makeup and skincare that help them look and feel their best on their road to survivorship.”
