On Tuesday, the American Cancer Society will offer its first "Look Good, Feel Better" program to residents in Payson and surrounding communities. Guided by volunteer cosmetologists, female cancer patients who participate in this class will learn how to use makeup and skin care techniques to overcome the appearance-related effects of chemotherapy and radiation.
The class runs from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and will be held at Payson Senior Circle at 215 N. Beeline Highway. To register or for additional information, call (928) 474-2110. Classes will continue to be held every other month at the same location and time.
"The class gave me a feeling of wellness and made a big difference in my motivation level," says Joyce L., a former "Look Good, Feel Better" participant. "After applying the right makeup to enhance my color, I could feel good again about the way I looked. I had my confidence back."
"Look Good, Feel Better" is as much about improving and maintaining self-image and confidence as it is about appearance," said Barbie Patterson, of the American Cancer Society.
