Cancer patients get beauty boost

January 24, 2005

Albany- The American Cancer Society held a Look good... Feel Better volunteer training Monday.

Licensed beauty professionals and Albany Tech cosmetology students learned how to teach women undergoing cancer treatments safe methods of applying makeup and taking care of their hair.

"We do this program to uplift their spirits and to show them that it's okay if your hair comes out there's always other options that you can take," says cosmetologist Celestine Griffin.

In addition to learning new beauty techniques, the women also receive a free makeup kit worth between $300 and $400.

For more information about how to sign up for the next beauty session contact Marilyn Fowler at the American Cancer Society at 229-446-1073.
