MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (PRESS RELEASE) -

Every day, a woman with cancer looks in the mirror at a reflection she doesn't recognize. She may have lost her hair. Her skin may be dry or blemished. Her nails may be lifting away from her fingers.

The American Cancer Society (ACS) helps by bringing these women together for free workshops to manage the appearance related side effects of cancer treatment. The Society is recruited licensed cosmetologists and aestheticians who will volunteer to lead these programs in the upstate. A free volunteer certification class was offered on Monday, at the American Cancer Society office, 950 48th Avenue North, Suite 101, in Myrtle Beach.

"We really need volunteers to lead these programs in Florence and Georgetown Counties," ACS Mission Delivery Specialist Fronde Merchant said.

Beauty professionals learned how to guide patients through a 12-step makeup and skin care program. Volunteers were trained in using wigs, scarves and other head coverings. Beauty professionals also receive training in nail care during cancer treatment.

Through Look Good Feel Better, women who are going through cancer treatment not only gain beauty techniques, they improve their self-esteem. The program empowers women to manage their cancer treatment and recovery with greater confidence. They receive support and build a sense of community with others who are going through similar experiences.

Look Good Feel Better is a free program administered by the American Cancer Society in partnership with the Professional Beauty Association and the Personal Care Products Council Foundation, a charitable organization supported by the cosmetic industry. For more information about the program, call 1-800-ACS-2345 or http://lookgoodfeelbetter.org/programs.
