Look Good, Feel Better.
Published 07 Dec 2021
These programes provide an opportunity for cancer patients to connect, feel more in control and look more like their normal selves with tips, techniques and the tools to face cancer with more confidence.
Both my parents have had battles with cancer and Mum found it particularly hard. Chemo made her physically ill but the dramatic appearance side effects like losing her hair contributed to her losing her sense of well being and sense of identity.
When Mum was well enough, she and my sister attended a workshop funded by Look Good Feel Better which offered support and the chance to connect with others facing similar challenges. She was part of a small group of women, who had different cancer diagnoses and were going through different treatments. She learnt how to manage the appearance-related impact of cancer and it’s treatment with the help from her personal volunteer.
That work workshop transformed not only her look but most importantly her outlook. It really helped her face her fear and the reality she was going through.
Now, we want to say thank you and to help improve the self esteem and quality of life for women, men and teens undergoing cancer treatment in New Zealand.
When you book any one of our tours we will donate $2 on behalf of every person to Look Good Feel Better which will keep supporting these free programes and keep supporting people like my Mum.
