Look Good Feel Better
Look Good Feel Better is like a makeover for the spirit. The free 2-hour workshops provide a safe and supportive environment where women with cancer come together to learn ways to manage the effects that cancer and its treatment have on their appearance. At Look Good Feel Better, the belief is that if a woman with cancer can be helped to look good, chances are she’ll feel better, her spirits will be lifted and she will be able to face cancer with greater confidence. The Look Good Feel Better workshops are led by industry-trained cosmetic advisors who teach women how to use makeup and hair alternatives to help them look and feel more like themselves again. And beyond the therapeutic effects of looking good, a Look Good Feel Better workshop experience helps women realize they are not alone on their journey.
Here’s what some of our LGFB Alumni have to say about their workshop experiences.

Facingcancer.ca is designed to be a companion program to Look Good Feel Better. Facingcancer.ca is an online community where women with cancer and their supporters can gather to talk about the many things they experience on their cancer journey, such as changes to their bodies, the challenges of meeting family responsibilities throughout treatment, financial concerns or strategies to help a loved one who has been diagnosed — very simply, it’s a place for women and those who love and support them, to discuss ‘everything else’ they’re going through with cancer. We’ve learned that it’s crucial for those facing the cancer journey to be able to share, confide and connect, and this new site provides an avenue to make those connections. It’s an important first step in ensuring that no woman has to face cancer alone.
Meet our bloggers and join the conversation at Facingcancer.ca – where everyone gathers to talk about what’s on their mind.
