Look Good, Feel Better
"Look Good, Feel Better" (LGFB) is a free, American Cancer Society-sponsored program to help women offset appearance-related changes from cancer treatment. Each two-hour, hands-on workshop includes a 12-step skin care/makeup application lesson, demonstration of options for dealing with hair loss, and nail care techniques.
Each group is facilitated by LGFB-certified cosmetologists, and aided by general volunteers.
