Look Good Feel Better Workshops at St. Catherine Hospital

(GARDEN CITY, KAS) St. Catherine Hospital will host the Look Good...Feel Better(r) workshops for area women battling cancer. This is the only location in western Kansas to host these free workshops.

The program, sponsored by the American Cancer Society, National Cosmetology Association and the Personal Care Products Council Foundation, provides a high-quality make-up kit and teaches beauty techniques to female cancer patients in active treatment to help them combat the appearance-related side effects of cancer treatment.

The next workshop will be held Monday, August 17th, 2015 from 5-7 pm at the Breast Center at St. Catherine Hospital, 309 E. Walnut. Dates for the remainder of the sessions are, October 19, and December 7 at the same location.

During each session, trained cosmetologists teach cancer patients how to cope with skin changes and hair loss by using cosmetics and skin care products donated by the cosmetic industry. The free cosmetic kits are valued at $250 each and are available in light, medium, dark, and extra-dark shades. Women learn how to disguise hair loss with wigs, scarves, and other accessories, create the impression of having eyebrows or eyelashes, and take care of skin damaged by cancer treatments.
