The Look Good, Feel Better program, a collaboration of the American Cancer Society, the Personal Care Products Council Foundation and the National Cosmetology Association/Professional Beauty Association, brings in a trained volunteer cosmetologist to talk to women dealing with cancer.

The cosmetologist teaches women in a group session how to cope with skin changes from cancer treatment and hair loss using cosmetics and skin care products. Women also learn ways to disguise hair loss with wigs, scarves, and accessories.

Session will be held from 6-8 p.m. Monday and Nov. 26 or Dec. 10 at Apple Hill Medical Center, 25 Monument Road, and 1 to 2:30 p.m. on Nov. 19 at the Hanover Education & Wellness Building, Life Changes Boutique, 400 York St., Hanover.

The session is free. The program has helped women with cancer improve their self-esteem and manage their cancer treatment and recovery through workshops, practical tips and guidance.
