Opportunity For The Female Cancer Sisterhood To Thrive

To ‘look good’ really makes you ‘feel better’ when you are battling a disease that challenges the very essence of your femininity”.

Dankie

Ek wil graag van die geleentheid gebruik maak om vir jou en jou span asook vir  “Look Good, Feel Better” groot dankie te sê vir al die geduld, omgee, handvashou en liefde vir al die kanker pasiente wat oor jul pad gestuur word. Julle kry heelwaarskynlik nie altyd die dankie en drukkie nie, maar weet verseker dit word tog opreg waardeer. Namens al die kanker pasiente en ons wie se hand julle ook moontlik eendag sal moet vashou, groot dankie. My klient, mev Bonafede het my gister 2x geskakel net om vir my te vertel hoe lekker sy gister deur “Look Good, Feel Better” gepamper is. Sy het lanklaas so geliefd en spesiaal gevoel. Dankie. Weereens groot dankie aan jou en jou span.”

Restores Patient Self-Esteem & Confidence

Sr. Gael Macbeth is enthusiastically in favor of the LG…FB program. She says that all patients seem to hit a slump during their treatment but after they have attended a workshop they come to the clinic wearing makeup and they have got back their self-esteem and confidence. “ It makes a big difference to our patients.

Seldom Sees Patients Without Make-up

Dr. Linda van Zyl says she seldom sees her patients without makeup after they have attended a workshop and there is a subtle change in their attitude and how they feel about themselves.

” The type of program promoted by Look Good… Feel Better derives value because it is driven by the donations and sponsorship of the cosmetic industry but the value it gives our patients; they will carry for the rest of their lives,”
