I remember how crucial it was for me to be around positive people when hope was so low. Now, as a volunteer, I have a chance to offer a positive energy, attitude, and knowledge about how to empower yourself with makeup and hair; for a woman facing cancer it is so helpful and truly mind-strengthening.
It’s really good to be able to look your best even though you’re not feeling great... so I find this program very beneficial. If we can get the word out there that this program is available for cancer patients, I think we’d be doing a great job and a great service to those who really need it

Being able to do something very tangible like that, that helps a woman recover her sense of her own identity can have an enormous benefit on her sense of well-being and comfort with oneself and comfort in the world. It takes one thing off the table at a time when there are so many other fears that woman might be facing.

While they’re going through treatment and they’re feeling kind of down and low that just gives them confidence - the eyebrows, the makeup, the moisturizers and then once we put a wig on them they leave here just on a high - they’re just so happy.
I don’t think we give enough credit to helping a patient on a day-to-day basis. Everybody’s focused on the medical treatment and not necessarily the psychological treatment and what we do really helps that ... it’s not a cure, but what it does is it supports them, it makes them feel better and I truly believe that a positive attitude goes a long way in your being able to survive.
My mom told me about the Look Good Feel Better workshop and I was pretty unsure at first. The makeup, the wigs? I didn’t think it was for me - maybe I just didn’t want to face it all, but I decided to give it a try. Right away, I just felt really welcome. There were women just like me, going through the same types of things I am. I was surprised at how good it made me feel - it’s nice to feel attractive and it was fun. In some ways, it helped me face my fear and the reality of what I’ve been going through. It was nice to feel like me again.
