Today gave me a reason to live!

“I feel great and important. It boosted my self-esteem and I’m overwhelmed by the generosity of the gifts and the lovely people helping us.

I feel very special and important.

I could recommend it to other survivors.

I loved the interaction we shared.

It introduced me to some wonderful products.

All the volunteers are helpful and they explain things clearly.

Today gave me a reason to live”


Opportunity For The Female Cancer Sisterhood To Thrive

“Look Good…Feel Better is a wonderful opportunity for the female cancer sisterhood to thrive towards success, & through camaraderie & understanding provides a foundation for living with a life-threatening disease. To ‘look good’ really makes you ‘feel better’ when you are battling a disease that challenges the very essence of your femininity”.

Lynette Maduri


This workshop gave me hope to continue

“This workshop gave me hope to continue with life because my improved self-image has given me the courage to face anything. You can stand for anything if you ‘look good and feel good”.

Mokgadi Leboho


Feeling Like A Princess

“With 6 weeks before my wedding and bald, I never thought I would feel like a princess on my big day, but being pampered at the Look Good…Feel Better workshop,  I realized that I could still look great! The volunteers were empathetic and their fun, bubbly personalities made the day upbeat!”

Fiona Thatcher


Looking Like A Million Bucks!

“It was great to walk out of the workshop looking like a million bucks and receiving all those great gifts was just the ‘bests’ ever!”

Lella Cullingworth


Confident & Beautiful

“I feel confident and beautiful and feel I can now accept I have cancer and have the courage to fight it. The makeover took my mind off my illness.”

Hazel Mthembu


This Has Given My Sense Of Beauty Back

“As a woman having had a mastectomy you somehow lost that feeling of being beautiful and this has started to give me that sense of beauty back.”

Marietha van Vuuren.

I Feel Beautiful

“I feel beautiful, was very emotional when we started but absolutely loved it! It meant so much, added to my self-esteem, and boosted my confidence. “

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.

Spirits Lifting In Front Of Me

“I found the introductory workshop to be everything you promised and more. I experienced the participants’ spirits lifting virtually in front of me. I must congratulate you and your team for all your efforts.”

Leigh Pollio

then Acting  Head: Public Relations Groote Schuur Hospital

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,”

Dr. Linda van Zyl

The Look Good Feel Better Team Leaves The Oncology Department With A Warm Glow.

“When the Look Good Feel Better team visits, without exception, it leaves the oncology department with a warm glow. What a lovely initiative. Please keep it up, girls. It is so uplifting for the patients.”

The Look Good.. Feel Better program, although working with cosmetics, compliments the fight against cancer. Anything that can be done to uplift patients fight the disease is of value”.
