Look Good Feel Better

At Look Good Feel Better we believe that cancer care needs to treat the whole person, including her well-being and the quality of life of the people that are affected.

It’s easy to forget how much of our identity is related to our physical appearance – things like hair and body image can be a powerful part of that. Cancer affects this at a time when a woman may be feeling vulnerable in many other ways.

Our workshop shows women certain steps they can take so they can look good, feel better and get closer to the person they were before they began fighting this debilitating disease. It takes one thing off the table at a time when there are so many other fears that a woman may be facing.
