PRINCETON — The local American Cancer Society will sponsor a free “Look Good ... Feel Better” program from 10 a.m. to noon Nov. 7 in the White Oak Classroom at Perry Memorial Hospital in Princeton.
The program teaches self care techniques to female cancer patients in active treatment to help them combat the appearance-related side effects of cancer treatment. Trained volunteer cosmetologists teach women how to cope with skin changes and hair loss using cosmetics and skin care products donated by the cosmetic industry. Women also learn ways to disguise hair loss with wigs, scarves and other accessories. Participants will also learn about a local wig bank, how to care for a wig and tips for comfort while wearing a wig.
The event is a free, non-medical, product-neutral program offered in partnership with the American Cancer Society, the National Cosmetology Association, and The Cosmetic Toiletry and Fragrance Association Foundation. To register, call the American Cancer Society at 815-229-1287.
