Look Good...Feel Better

The American Cancer Society, Wyoming Valley Unit, offers free workshops for women who are in cancer treatment to help them deal with temporary changes in their appearance from radiation or chemotherapy treatment. The workshop is facilitated by trained cosmetologists who teach women with cancer how to understand and care for changes in skin and hair that may occur during treatment. The programs are offered in partnership with the National Cosmetology Association and the Cosmetic, Toiletry and Fragrance Association Foundation.

Participants receive a makeup demonstration and a complimentary makeup kit. Each session lasts about 2 hours. Registration is free, but required! Call 1-888-227-5445, option 1 to register.
