Look Good Feel Better (LGFB), a free national community service program run by the Cancer Patients Foundation that is dedicated to teaching cancer patients how to manage the appearance-related side-effects caused by cancer treatment, has launched virtual workshops.

Any woman who is currently undergoing treatment for any type of cancer and potentially finding the increased isolation and a lack of connection challenging can register for a virtual workshop.

“Even in these uncertain times, cancer patients can stay connected with and through us and we’re thrilled that we can still help Australians face cancer with confidence with this new service offering,” communications and PR manager Vanessa Gambin said.

These workshops are free, live and interactive and two options are available:

Skin care and make-up (1 hour) addressing common side-effects of cancer treatment like dryness and sun sensitivity; correcting and concealing redness, sallowness, pigmentation and dark circles; and techniques for drawing on eyebrows and eyelashes.

Wigs and headwear (1 hour) offering advice on wig selection, wig care, scarf styling and alternative headwear options.

During the interactive workshops, the LGFB facilitator will demonstrate and answer participant’s questions while they follow along and try the techniques as they go.

Patients can choose to register for one or both workshops.

In addition to this, LGFB are also still offering its Home-Delivered Confidence Kit service.

Home-Delivered Confidence Kits are available to women currently undergoing treatment for any type of cancer.

The kit includes skincare and cosmetics products participants would normally receive at a workshop, along with a booklet and instructional DVD, allowing them to gain the practical benefits of a workshop from the comfort of their own home. 

Patients can register for a Virtual Workshop here, or download a referral form for a Home-Delivered Confidence Kit here.
