If you are a regular reader you know that I do what I can to spread the word about cancer related charities and events, specifically Breast Cancer but other types of cancer as well. Just recently I told you about Amanda’s Army and the fundraising widget is in my sidebar if you would like to help with that.
Today I want to share with you about Look Good Feel Better. I know a bit about this program because my mom leads Look Good Feel Better classes at her local American Cancer Society office! All of the pictures in this post are of women in her classes who have given permission to be photographed for promotional use.
About Look Good Feel Better
The appearance changes women undergo while coping with cancer treatment – like beauty itself – are far more than skin deep. They can impact a woman’s self-esteem and rob her of the courage and confidence she needs to face one of the toughest battles of her life.
Look Good Feel Better, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping women living with cancer to manage the appearance side effects of treatment and improve their self-esteem, celebrates its 25th Anniversary this year, marking a milestone in helping women undergoing cancer treatment. To mark this monumental occasion, Look Good Feel Better is encouraging women to “Reimagine Beauty” (both inside and out) and what it means to women undergoing cancer treatment.
What Can YOU Do?
- Hopefully, you don’t have cancer but unfortunately, you probably know someone who does. Let them know about Look Good Feel Better and the programs they offer. They have classes for men, women and teens. Just enter your zip code on the program finder to see what is available in your area.

Sharethe “after” photo from the Virtual Makeover tool on Facebook or Twitter, using the hashtag #ReimagineBeauty, to spread awareness and to be entered for a chance to win a trip to the National Women’s Survivors Convention in Nashville, TN July 31 through August 2, 2014. I did and if I would be lucky enough to win I would give the trip to my mom who inspires me every day as she gives of her time and talents to people battling cancer.
