Look Good Feel Better (LGFB) is the only international cancer support charity, providing practical and very effective free services for women and teenagers suffering from the visible side effects of cancer treatment.
LGFB is dedicated to improving the wellbeing and self-confidence of people undergoing treatment for any type of cancer. Many beneficiaries tell us that LGFB helped them regain a sense of control and normality at a time when diagnosis and treatment had taken over their lives.
Finding out you have cancer can be daunting and life-changing and the added stress of the appearance related side effects of treatment can be demoralising as well as being very hard to cope with. This can have serious consequences on self-esteem and confidence at a time when a positive attitude is very important. Look Good Feel Better is dedicated to improving the self-esteem, confidence and wellbeing of people undergoing treatment for any sort of cancer.
It is our aim to improve their self-image and appearance through free group and self-help skincare and make-up workshops that create a sense of support, confidence, and wellbeing. In the UK, Look Good Feel Better gained charitable status in 1993 and has to date provided support to nearly 100,000 patients. Our services have the support of over 40 leading companies and brands from the Beauty and Fragrance Industry, as well as many other organisations who recognise the benefits of our service.
Many beneficiaries tell us that Look Good Feel Better helped them regain a sense of control and normality at a time when diagnosis and treatment can make everything feel overwhelming. “The whole experience was outstanding. It’s not just about a bit of make-up, it’s not vanity – it’s about control. It gives women the strength to fight this horrible disease.” Fiona, LGFB Beneficiary Workshops and Masterclasses are available in venues across the UK.
They are conducted by our trained Look Good Feel Better beauty volunteers who share their tips and techniques for minimising side-effects such as skin changes, eyebrow and eyelash loss.
Cancer can rob a woman of her energy and strength but with the support of Look Good Feel Better it need not take away her self-confidence.
