MORRIS – The Radiation Therapy Center of Morris Hospital is offering “Look Good … Feel Better,” a free program for women undergoing cancer treatment, from 1 to 3 p.m. Monday at the Radiation Therapy Center of Morris Hospital, 1600 W. U.S. Route 6 in Morris.

Held in cooperation with the Cosmetic, Toiletry and Fragrance Association and the National Cosmetology Association, this American Cancer Society sponsored program is designed to teach beauty techniques to help overcome the appearance-related side effects of chemotherapy and radiation treatment.

Volunteer cosmetologists will teach women how to cope with skin changes and hair loss using cosmetics and skin care products donated by the cosmetic industry.

Free cosmetic kits are provided to participants, and women also will learn ways to disguise hair loss with wigs, scarves and other accessories.

Register online at www.morrishospital.org/events, or call the Radiation Therapy Center at 815-364-8915.
