A new session of the Look Good Feel Better program for area women currently in cancer treatment is planned for Thursday in Bowling Green. It will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. at Wood County Hospital.
The program is a collaboration of the American Cancer Society, the Personal Care Products Council Foundation and the National Cosmetology Association/Professional Beauty Association.
"Look Good" sessions are free, and offer women with cancer guidance to improve their self-esteem and manage their appearance during cancer treatment.  Volunteer cosmetologists educate cancer patients with step by step make-up techniques, hairstyling, head wraps, and nail tips. Each woman gets a donated makeup kit to use during and after the workshop.
"Enhancing a woman's confidence, her inner beauty, by giving her the support and the tools she needs to manage her changing appearance during cancer treatment," is the program's goal, says Marybeth Torsell, the American Cancer Society (ACS) local coordinator.
Any female cancer patient interested in attending the workshop should call   ACS at 1-800-227-2345 or visit cancer.org.
