Look Good...Feel Better
Women who are currently undergoing treatment for a cancer diagnosis are encouraged to attend. Only program participants may attend the workshop. Due to confidentiality and comfort level of the patients, as well as space restrictions, this protocol is necessary. This ensures that the participant receives full attention to gain the skills and confidence for increased independence.
A patient may attend more than one workshop, however, she should bring her LGFB cosmetic kit with her to the additional workshop. Patients with a recurrence of cancer and who are receiving another round of treatment may attend another workshop and receive a new cosmetic kit.
Registration is required.
