Look Good...Feel Better

Ever heard of Look Good...Feel Better? No, it's not a vitamin cream, nor is it a nutrient-infused drink concoction. It is a a free, non-medical, brand-neutral, national public service program founded in 1989 and supported by corporate donors to help women offset appearance-related changes from cancer treatment.

FREE. HELP. For women (and men and teens) who have cancer, and are dealing with the effects of the disease...and the treatments...Look Good...Feel Better offers many services.

Group Programs
Each two-hour, hands-on workshop includes a 12-step skin care/make-up application lesson, demonstration of options for dealing with hair loss, and nail care techniques.

One-on-One’s
Trained cosmetologists provide personal advice in salons using patients’ own make-up, as well as a free make-over tips booklet.

Self-Help Kits
“Just for You” self-help kits in English or Spanish with 30-minute video and make-over tips booklet are offered free to patients who cannot locally access Look Good...Feel Better.

Hotline
Look Good...Feel Better's toll-free information and referral line — 1-800-395-LOOK — is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Our trained specialists speak English and Spanish — and translators are available for many other languages.

And the major sponsors and donors list reads like a who's who of cosmetics giants and well-known cancer research and support foundations and charities. Quite impressive to say the least.
