Look Good Feel Better’s Workshop on Wheels
by: News Canada
(NC)-For thousands of women living with cancer, managing the appearance-related side effects of cancer treatment can be as challenging as the treatments themselves. Temporary hair loss (including eye brows and lashes), sensitive and discoloured skin, brittle and cracked nails and facial weight gain are only a few of the realities that will face an estimated 67,200 Canadian women this year.
Since 1992, Look Good Feel Better has helped more than 350,000 Canadian women living with cancer to look good and feel better by teaching cosmetic techniques and hair alternatives to help manage the appearance-related side effects of cancer and its treatment. Free, two-hour workshops are offered at 65 hospitals and cancer-care facilities across Canada.
In celebration of its tenth anniversary, the program, which is sponsored by the member companies of the Canadian Cosmetic, Toiletry and Fragrance Association, is traveling across the country with the Workshop on Wheels (WoW), a customized 48-foot trailer replicating a Look Good Feel Better workshop environment. Visiting 20 cities from April until October, the Workshop on Wheels will feature live demonstrations, as program participants and trained volunteers present tips and techniques on makeup, hair alternatives, nail and skin care practices and cosmetic hygiene.
