Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center To Host Look Good…Feel Better® Program For Women Undergoing Cancer Treatment
Hospital Helps Cancer Patients ‘Look good, Feel better’ in the New Year
In partnership with the American Cancer Society, The Center for Breast Health at Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center has announced that they will host a series of workshops designed to help cancer patients improve self-image through group beauty sessions. Entitled “Look Good … Feel Better®” (LGFB), the first session will be held on Monday, January 28 from 5 p.m. – 6:30 p.m. at The Center for Breast Health, located in Good Samaritan’s new Medical Office Building, Suite 200, 257 Lafayette Ave., Suffern.
A diagnosis of cancer can be one of the most devastating challenges a woman faces, both physically and emotionally. Not the least of the issues she may face are those that can be seen by others: changes in or loss of hair, skin issues and other bodily changes as radiation and chemotherapy work to cure the disease.
Since 1989, LGFB has helped over 700,000 women being treated for cancer face these inner and outer challenges with helpful, uplifting, compassionate classes where volunteer beauty industry professionals teach them how to make the most of makeup, hair care, clothing, jewelry and accessories – to transform not only the way they look on the outside, but the way they feel on the inside.
“Women who attend LGFB programs at Good Samaritan are much more positive when they leave the program than when they arrive”, said Ana Gonzalez, Patient Navigator at The Center for Breast Health at Good Samaritan Hospital Regional Medical Center. “Everyone shows off their new look and you can just see their smiles. It is wonderful to be a part of LGFB to see the difference that it makes in someone’s life.”
In addition to the upcoming January session, LGFB classes will be offered monthly at Good Samaritan throughout the year from 5 p.m. – 6:30 p.m. on the last Monday of each month with the exception of March and May when the class will be held on the third Monday (March 18 and May 20). There will be no class during the month of August.
The event is free, however, seating is limited and registration is required. Each participant will receive a free cosmetics kit.
