Cosemetologists wanted to help cancer patients

Thursday, January 22, 2004

The American Cancer Society seeks cosmetologists in the area to help cancer patients cope with appearance-related side effects of treatment. The Look Good Feel Better program allows these cosmetologists to teach beauty and hygiene tips to women undergoing cancer treatment. A training session for new volunteer cosmetologists will be Feb. 2 at St. Bernards Auxiliary House in Jonesboro from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. To register for the training call 870-934-0001 by Jan. 30.

The training session is open to all licensed cosmetologists who would like to volunteer their time and talents to the fight against cancer. At the session, volunteers will learn how to teach women undergoing cancer treatment to cope with changes in their bodies caused by treatment, such as hair loss and changes in skin color.

Look Good Feel Better is a non-medical program offered free of charge by the American Cancer Society, the Cosmetic, Toiletry and Fragrance Association Foundation and the National Cosmetology Association. No product endorsements are given, and participants are never asked to buy anything from volunteers or participating organizations.

The American Cancer Society is the nationwide, community-based, voluntary health organization dedicated to eliminating cancer as a major health problem by preventing cancer, saving lives and diminishing suffering from cancer, through research, education, advocacy and service.
