American Cancer Society collaborates with UPMC Chautauqua WCA

JAMESTOWN — Cancer can rob a woman of her energy, appetite and strength. But it doesn’t have to take away her self-confidence. The American Cancer Society’s Look Good Feel Better program offers female cancer patients in active treatment techniques to restore their self-image and cope with appearance-related side effects. Certified cosmetologists provide tips on make-up, skin care, nail care, and teach women how to cope with skin changes and hair loss by using new, donated cosmetic kits that patients are able to keep. Women also learn ways to disguise hair loss with scarves and other accessories. The program is free to the public.

In collaboration with UPMC Chautauqua WCA, sessions of the American Cancer Society’s Look Good Feel Better program will be held at UPMC Chautauqua WCA Cancer Treatment Center, Conference Room, 51 Glasgow Ave., Jamestown, Monday, Feb. 27, 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.

Look Good Feel Better is free but registration is required and seating is limited. For more information or to register, please contact the American Cancer Society at 1-800-227-2345. The American Cancer Society is a good resource for information about cancer-related appearance changes as well as all other cancer information. To learn more visit www.cancer.org
