PAULDING – Hope, confidence and caring are three words that embody the Look Good Feel Better program. The program, a collaboration of the American Cancer Society, the Personal Care Products Council Foundation and the National Cosmetology Association/Professional Beauty Association, celebrates woman and their cancer journey.

The sessions are free, and while they offer no medical advice, Look Good Feel Better programs have helped to deliver courage, confidence, control, community and caring to each participant. Over the last 20 years this program has helped hundreds of women with cancer in northwest Ohio improve their self-esteem and manage their cancer treatment and recovery through workshops, practical tips and guidance.

The next free program in the Paulding County area will be from 10 a.m.-noon Monday, Feb. 18 at the Paulding County Hospital in Paulding.

Other Look Good Feel Better programs in the next month include Bryan on Feb. 18, Defiance on Feb. 25 and Napoleon on March 5.

If you are a cancer patient interested in attending a workshop, call the American Cancer Society to register at 1-800-227-2345.

During the program, volunteer cosmetologists educate cancer patients with step by step make-up techniques, hairstyling, head wraps, and nail tips. Each woman gets a donated makeup kit to use during and after the workshop.
