WARE — The Baystate Regional Cancer Program at Baystate Mary Lane Hospital and the American Cancer Society will present “Look Good … Feel Better,” a free program for area women on Thursday, Jan. 30, from 10 a.m. to noon.
The program teaches beauty techniques to women who are undergoing cancer treatment. The session offers participants support and information, and is designed to be an enjoyable first step toward renewed self-esteem, self-confidence, and emotional recovery for cancer patients undergoing radiation or chemotherapy.
Deb Rozzen, volunteer cosmetologist with the “Look Good … Feel Better” program, will be on hand to work with each woman to help them learn how to enhance their appearance using makeup techniques. Wig care, scarf and hat use, skin care, and nail care will all be discussed, and all participants will receive a free makeup kit.
The session is limited to 12 people and is open to any woman undergoing cancer treatment in the area. Pre-registration is required by calling Camille St. Onge, oncology social worker at Baystate Mary Lane Hospital, at (413) 967-2245.
