LOCK HAVEN - Cancer is a challenge of a lifetime. It can rob patients of not just their health but also their overall sense of well-being, and can change their sense of identity.
Hope is easier to come by when the patient feels she can manage her disease. One aspect of managing cancer is dealing with the side-effects of treatment, and to that end, the American Cancer Society sponsors "Look Good... Feel Better" sessions.
Look Good... Feel Better is a non-medical program aimed at helping women undergoing cancer treatment combat the physical side-effects of their treatment. Trained local cosmetologists help them learn techniques to care for the changes in their hair, skin and nails. Participants have fun and learn how to moisturize their skin, add color, draw eyebrows, fit wigs, take care of their nails, tie turbans, and pick up many other tips for putting their best face forward.
Two-hour sessions are offered once a month at Susque-View Home.
Special sessions offered in May include the monthly session from 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, May 9 at Susque-View, planned on a Mother's Day theme. The other session is planned for May 19 at the Clinton County Relay For Life.
The next program will be from 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, June 13.
Pre-Registration is important for each session. To pre-register, call 1-888-227-5445 .
