Looking good to feel better

THE Look Good, Feel Better clinic, aimed to bring smiles to the faces of cancer patients, is looking to bring its workshops to the North Burnett.

The organisation is looking for community input on where it should go including places like Gayndah and Mundubbera.

The Look Good, Feel Better state program manager Carol Fazel said cancer patients from small regional communities travelled to Bundaberg or Brisbane for treatment.

“The opportunity to attend a workshop with family and friends at home is invaluable support we can offer,” she said.

“Our partners, health professionals, plus logistics such as venues need to be part of our discussion with the communities.”

The two-hour, hands-on workshop gives patients a chance to laugh, smile and forget about cancer.

The workshops are conducted by qualified members of the skincare, beauty therapy and hair industries.

The program, created by an oncologist with the help of the beauty industry, offers practical advice on skincare, make-up, hair loss, comfort and relaxation with the attendees taking home a collection of donated products.
