Southwest Regional Medical Center and ACS Program Partnership ContinuesFebruary 15, 2013
Southwest Regional Medical Center Will Continue American Cancer Society Programs
Waynesburg- Despite the closing of the Southwest Regional Medical Center Hematology and Oncology Center, Southwest Regional Medical Center will continue to offer two key programs in conjunction with the American Cancer Society. The Look Good… Feel Better and the Wig Salon programs will continue in support of patients undergoing cancer treatment.
Look Good…Feel Better is a free class for women currently undergoing treatment for cancer. The American Cancer Society offers the program in partnership with the Personal Care Products Council Foundation and the National Cosmetology Association. The class is offered in a group setting and provides women with personal care information and support to help them through their cancer journey. Attendees will learn from licensed volunteer cosmetologists how to enhance their appearance using make-up techniques. Each woman learns how to apply her own make-up using complimentary cosmetics and skin care products. They will also learn how to disguise hair-loss using wigs, turbans, scarves, and various accessories. Sessions and cosmetic kits are provided at no charge.
All of the Look Good…Feel Better sessions will be held in the Guesman Room, which is located on the second floor of Southwest Regional Medical Center, from 10:00am- noon. Registration is required. Please call 1-800-227-2345.
The 2013 Look Good…Feel Better dates are:
- March 18, 2013
- June 17, 2013
- September 16, 2013
- December 2, 2013
In addition to the Look Good…Feel Better program, Southwest Regional Medical Center will continue operating the American Cancer Society Wig Salon. The salon is available to help cancer patients manage the impact of cancer on their lives by providing one free wig to each patient.
The salon is located on the fourth floor of Southwest Regional Medical Center. Appointments are held privately, and by appointment, to ensure comfort for each patient.
“When I had cancer I had to go to Washington County to get my wig,” shared Valerie Cole, Wig Salon Volunteer. “I am so happy that we can offer this locally to those who need it.”
