Look Good Feel Better workshops are supportive, informative and full of easy, inspiring strategies for managing the appearance-related effects of cancer and its treatments.
Offered in over 100 hospital and cancer care facilities across Canada, our workshops for women are led by industry-trained cosmetic advisors and hair alternatives specialists who generously donate their time and expertise. The workshops are strictly brand-neutral – no brands, products, salons or services are endorsed – and they do not interfere with medical treatments. In fact, many health care providers believe that the positive outlook gained by many participants can play a tremendous role in the overall medical care and treatment.
What happens at our free workshops? For two hours, eight to ten women gather with trained advisors who take them through the program's Signature Steps for skin care, cover-up, eyes and colour, as well as hair alternatives. These volunteers understand the changes that cancer, radiation and chemotherapy can have on a woman's appearance. They provide creative solutions to help women face their fear of not looking like themselves.
In two hours, workshop participants feel empowered and ready to reclaim their sense of self and well-being. They also learn that they are not alone on their cancer journey.
We invite you to join us at a workshop in your area. Come for the information, and find a world of courage, inspiration and support. Do it for yourself and the ones you love – bring a friend if you like. You'll be glad you came.
