Because cancer and its treatments can lead to physical side effects, the American Cancer Society and Gritman Medical Center are offering a free class to help understand these changes.
Look Good...Feel Better is a collaborative effort that teams with licensed cosmetologists who donate time to teach beauty techniques to women in active cancer treatment.
The two-hour class is June 16 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. and is free of charge. It is held in the Gritman Cancer Resource Center Wagner Room on the second floor of Gritman Medical Center. All participants must pre-register by calling (208) 883-6030 or emailing email@example.com.
Classes are held in a friendly, confidential setting where professionals teach the women how to cope with skin changes and hair loss as well as how to shape and style wigs, scarves and turbans.
The Cancer Resource Center is open each weekday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. It is staffed entirely by ACS trained volunteers, many of whom have survived cancer.
Items such as prosthesis, bras, wigs and hats are available to cancer patients through the Cancer Resource Center.
