‘Look Good … Feel Better’ Program to Be Held in Ware April 27

WARE — The Baystate Regional Cancer Program at Baystate Mary Lane Outpatient Center and the American Cancer Society will sponsor “Look Good … Feel Better,” a free program for area women, on Thursday, April 27, from 10:00 a.m. to noon at the hospital in Ware.

The program teaches beauty techniques to women who are undergoing cancer treatment. The session offers support, information, and an enjoyable first step toward renewed self-esteem, self-confidence, and emotional recovery for cancer patients undergoing radiation or chemotherapy.

Cosmetologist Deb Rozzen will be on hand for the program 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 by April 14 is required by calling Camille St. Onge, oncology social worker at Baystate Mary Lane, at (413) 967-2245.
