THE Look Good Feel Better programme for cancer patients held its workshop last Friday at St Anne’s Hospital.

Fifteen women attended and were pampered and had their make-up done.

The Look Good Feel Better has now partnered with Msunduzi Hospice to try and get more cancer patients to join, even those who are not St Anne’s patients. Jeanette Unstead, the Pietermaritzburg programme co-ordinator, said their aim is to make cancer sufferers feel good about themselves.

“We want them to communicate with other ladies who are in similar position.We teach them how to take care of themselves and give them a skin-care hamper.

“We see that after the programme they are relaxed and see their transformation. Every attendee is inspiring,” she said. The programme is growing said Unstead and they are looking forward to having more ladies attend. “Our next workshop will be in two months - we still have to announce the date. We extend an invitation to people to come, but booking is essential as each workshop has limited space.” One of the attendees, Makhosi Mhlambi, said it was the first time she had attended the workshop and found it very informative.

“It gives you an idea about how to stay healthy and beautiful. I felt different after the workshop and I will tell other people to attend,” she said.
