Look Good Feel Better Program

Look Good Feel Better is an initiative of the Canadian Cosmetic, Toiletry and Fragrance Association Foundation (CCTFA). It is a national program dedicated to helping women with cancer learn techniques to manage the appearance-related side effects of their treatment.

CancerCare Manitoba promotes the program and provides space for the workshops.  Look Good Feel Better has dedicated teams of volunteer cosmetologists and wig specialists who conduct hands-on workshops on skin care, makeup and headcovering techniques.

The workshops are held monthly at four sites:

For information on upcoming sessions, see our Current Programs listing.

With a maximum of 10 women at each workshop, volunteers are able to give individual attention to the participants.

Each woman receives a kit of cosmetic products which have been donated by members of the CCFTA Foundation. A major tenet of the program is product neutrality, so cosmetologists are not recommending a specific product, but rather teaching techniques to enhance appearance and manage some of the changes related to the side effects of cancer treatment.

This is an invaluable support service for women undergoing treatment. Regaining control of her self-image is just one way a patient can take charge of her experience with cancer.

If you or someone you know is facing a diagnosis of cancer, please call. Give your self-image a boost.

There is no charge for the workshops, but pre-registration is required online.  To register for any location please go to www.lgfb.ca.  For those without access to a computer, or if you have any questions, please call 1-800-914-5665.
