RMH Hosts Look Good Feel Better Session

4/13/2016

Richland Memorial Hospital is proud to host a Look Good Feel Better session for women who are currently going through cancer treatments.
 
Look Good Feel Better is a program offered through the American Cancer Society. It is free to women who are in cancer treatments. During the Look Good Feel Better session, a licensed cosmetologist will teach beauty techniques to participants to help them manage the appearance-related side effects of cancer treatments.

The session scheduled at Richland Memorial Hospital will take place on May 2nd from 1:00 – 3:00 p.m. in the Heim Room (right inside the new main entrance). Any woman who would like to participate must pre-register for the event by calling 1-800-227-2345, or by calling Liesl Wingert, RMH Outreach Specialist, at 395-7340 ext. 4608.

During the session, beauty professionals will help women with:
• Skin care and makeup application
• Tips on wig selection and wig care
• Dry skin, discolored nails
• Scarves, turbans and hats
• Style tips (video)

Each participant will also be sent home with a goodie bag filled with many items to help with the above listed issues.

In addition, RMH has a wig bank. Women who have had cancer or are in active treatment can get a wig free of charge. Liesl will be available that day to answer any questions participants have about acquiring a wig.

Look Good Feel Better sessions are limited to 10 participants, so please call Liesl at 395-7340 ext. 4608 or 1-800-227-2345 at your earliest convenience to pre-register.
