According to English poet and essayist Sir Thomas Overbury, beauty is only skin deep—but we beg to disagree. Not that we think that physical appearance outweighs personality and integrity, but we do believe that beauty can bring a world of difference to a person’s life—especially to women undergoing treatments for cancer. These brave and strong women undergo a series of medical procedures on a regular basis—and not only does it rob them of their energy, appetite, time and youth, it also takes a toll on how they view themselves.
It is for this reason that Look Good Feel Better was founded. Its mission is to change the way people with cancer approach their disease: by teaching them that they can have some normalcy in a life that is by no means normal. Through innovative programs like free workshops and webinars, Look Good Feel Better has helped hundreds of thousands of people with cancer improve their self-esteem and confidence through lessons on skin and nail care, makeup and accessories that address the appearance related side effects of cancer treatment. In the United States alone, more than 800,000 women have participated in the program, which annually offers 16,000 group workshops nationwide in nearly 3,000 locations.
