Look Good Feel Better Can Help Cancer Patients Cope with Changes
(July 30, 2013 - Carroll Township, Pa.)
Getting a makeover can be just as uplifting and encouraging to cancer patients as it is for those not struggling with the effects of the disease and treatment. Maybe even more so.
Monongahela Valley Hospital will offer the Look Good Feel Better® program, a free event that teaches women how to deal with hair loss and skin changes from chemotherapy and radiation treatment.
The group will meet Monday, Aug. 3 and Monday, Oct. 5 from 1-3 p.m. in the Anthony M. Lombardi Education Conference Center on the hospital's Carroll Twp. campus.
"Look Good Feel Better provides extra support for cancer patients that they may not even know is out there," said Lisa Eicher, MVH's Oncology Nurse Navigator. "Facing a diagnosis is so hard and the reality is that the side effects can by physically and emotionally trying for many - hair loss, insomnia, nausea, poor appetite, weight gain or loss. We are proud to offer this program in August and October."
To register, call 1-800-227-2345. The American Cancer Society sponsors the program.
