Sadly many lives have been touched by cancer. My mother in law died from cancer. My great-grandmother died from cancer. My brother in law had cancer and my grandfather had cancer (breast cancer – men can get it too). We even lost an 11 year old family friend to brain cancer.
Cancer is a horrible disease!
If you have been touched by cancer, whether it was a loved one or yourself, I thought you might find this new campaign called #ReimageBeauty of interest. Or maybe you would consider sharing the information with family, friends, co-workers and your connections on your social media outlets.
Here is more information about the campaign. You can even win a trip to Nashville, Tennessee.
The appearance changes women undergo while coping with cancer treatment – like beauty itself – are far more than skin deep. They can impact a woman’s self-esteem and rob her of the courage and confidence she needs to face one of the toughest battles of her life.
Look Good Feel Better, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping women living with cancer to manage the appearance side effects of treatment and improve their self-esteem, celebrates its 25th Anniversary this year, marking a milestone in helping women undergoing cancer treatment. To mark this monumental occasion, Look Good Feel Better is encouraging women to “Reimagine Beauty” (both inside and out) and what it means to women undergoing cancer treatment, this week (Look Good Feel Better Week, April 28-May2), as well as throughout the year.
We are kicking off the #ReimagineBeauty campaign this week, and asking women to show their support of Look Good Feel Better and its 25th anniversary through three simple steps:
- Visit the Look Good Feel Better website to try the Virtual Makeover tool (http://lookgoodfeelbetter.org/beauty-guide/virtual-makeover-tool).
- Use the Look Good Feel Better Virtual Makeover tool by uploading your photo and trying the new hair and makeup looks. Through this experience, women everywhere can experience, in a small way, the tools women living with cancer receive during a Look Good Feel Better workshop in order to “reimagine beauty” and the impact Look Good Feel Better can have on women undergoing cancer treatment.
- Share the “after” photo from the Virtual Makeover tool on Facebook or Twitter, using the hashtag #ReimagineBeauty, to spread awareness and to be entered for a chance to win a trip to the National Women’s Survivors Convention in Nashville, TN July 31 through August 2, 2014.
o The winner will be randomly selected from all photos shared on Facebook and Twitter during the campaign, using the hashtag #ReimagineBeauty.
This sounds like a wonderful idea. I truly hope that my readers will take part of this special campaign.
Here is a little information about Look Good Feel Better.
Look Good Feel Better is a non-medical, brand-neutral and free public service program dedicated to helping women living with cancer to manage the appearance side effects of cancer treatment and improve their self-esteem.

In the United States alone, more than 900,000 women have participated in the program, which now offers 15,800 group workshops nationwide in 2,400 locations.
The program – developed by the Personal Care Products Council Foundation, and delivered through a collaboration with the American Cancer Society and the Professional Beauty Association – offers free workshops and other resources that teach beauty and styling techniques to cancer patients to help them manage the appearance side effects of treatment to help change the lives of people with cancer by helping the whole person, inside and out.
