The Dry July Foundation was pleased to award a grant to the Cancer Patients Foundation and Look Good Feel Better in 2015.
The funds are being used to offer 5 additional Look Good Feel Better Workshops in NSW, QLD, SA, VIC and WA, particularly in regional areas.
Past workshop participants have said of the program:
“As I face the imminent loss of my hair, for most of my life worn long and, so, such a visible and intrinsic part of my femininity, I now feel I can literally ‘put on my happy face’ for the world. So armed, rather than be an object of pity (no hair, cancer victim, poor thing, so sad) with my new make-up, stylish wig and other glamorous head accessories, I can instead visually and powerfully proclaim my warrior stance in my battle against this most insidious disease.”
Catherine, LGFB participant
“I went with trepidation but my doctor said ‘it would be right mate’ and it was… It is sometimes hard for us chaps to speak about our personal needs but you made it practical and common sense.”
Jeremy, LGFB participant
