Sparrow Clinton sponsors cancer patient beauty program

Published: Nov. 26, 2013

Chemotherapy and radiation treatments can greatly impact a cancer Patient's self esteem. That's why Sparrow Clinton Hospital and the American Cancer Society offer the Look Good ... Feel Better program for women.

Classes meet on Monday, Dec. 9, at 2 p.m. in the Sparrow Clinton Hospital Volunteer Workroom on the third floor.

This free, community-based service teaches cancer Patients helpful beauty techniques to enhance their appearance and self-image throughout the weeks of chemotherapy and radiation treatments.

A volunteer beauty professional provides instruction in practical make-up techniques and skin and nail care as well as hair loss options, including wigs, turbans and scarves. Each participant receives a free cosmetics kit for their personal use during and after the workshop.

Participants are asked to register at least four days prior to the class date, so individual kits can be ordered in advance. For more information or to register, call Jackie Coffelt at 989.227.3334.
