Looking good is not a matter of vanity. Studies show that people who are pleased with how they look have more energy, more resilience and a better attitude. This helps them handle the ups and downs of cancer treatment more easily.
The Faith and Hope Boutique at the Abramson Cancer Center and Solutions for Women boutique at Pennsylvania Hospital feature many items chosen specifically for cancer patients. Personal image programs also give patients ideas on how to look their best.
The Look Good, Feel Better Workshop is a free program at the Abramson Cancer Center and the Joan Karnell Cancer Center at Pennsylvania Hospital provided in conjunction with the American Cancer Society. The workshop teaches beauty techniques to women who are actively undergoing cancer treatment to help them combat the appearance-related side effects of radiation and chemotherapy.
