Cancer is difficult. Feeling Beautiful helps transform the experience by meeting vital and practical non-medical self-image needs of cancer patients.


THE PROBLEM

Cancer and its treatments typically cause a variety of appearance-related issues. Loss of hair and dry, brittle skin are the most common. But patients may also have to deal with surgical scars, changes in skin color and texture, and more. These changes can be demoralizing and result in a lack of self-confidence at the very time patients need more.

THE RESPONSE

Feeling Beautiful complements conventional cancer treatments by teaching hair care and beauty techniques to patients. Through live virtual “Days of Beauty,” hair and make-up lessons help patients look better and feel better. In addition, through accessing a helpful library of Feeling Beautiful video tutorials, patients can help themselves look and feel better any time, any day.

THE RESULT
More than hair and make-up, Feeling Beautiful helps empower patients to renew their own sense of hope and confidence and come to experience a more powerful self- image. 

Start here by exploring all the ways you can feel better by looking better.
