Despite the unpredictable situation the world is currently facing, the beauty industry’s flagship cancer support charity, Look Good Feel Better (LGFB), is determined to continue to provide its confidence and morale-boosting support for cancer patients across the UK.
Thousands of people a week are still being diagnosed with cancer and the charity’s services are required now more than ever. During this uncertain time, cancer patients are likely to be feeling even more isolated, frightened and incredibly stressed. In response, LGFB has acted swiftly by launching Virtual Workshops. Groups of up to eight people are being brought together online and practical advice is provided by trained experts.
Like their ‘normal’ workshops held in over 140 locations across the country, the new Virtual Workshops are designed to help alleviate negativity, give patients back some control and raise their confidence levels by helping them to combat the visible side effects of their cancer treatment. Sessions cover how to overcome the visible side effects of cancer treatment, including loss of eyebrows and eyelashes and how to manage skin issues. The Virtual Workshops give people living with cancer the chance to chat to others, share experiences, regain a sense of normality at a time when things are anything but normal and feel supported at this very challenging time.
Regular workshops for up to eight participants are available by signing up via the Look Good Feel Better website, including newly available workshops for men. Beauty companies and experts who want to offer their expertise, products or support to LGFB can email CEO Sarahjane Robertson at Sj@lgfb.co.uk or visit the LGFB website.
We all know someone affected by cancer, so please help spread the word.
