The American Cancer Society will sponsor a Look Good...Feel Better makeover workshop at the Breast Cancer Support Services on Aug. 10, from 6-8 p.m. The workshop will be held at Breast Cancer Support Services, 529 Reading Avenue, West Reading, PA 19611.

Local female cancer patients will have an opportunity to brighten their day during the workshop.

During this two-hour session, trained cosmetologists will meet with patients to discuss how to use makeup and accessories to minimize appearance related side effects of chemotherapy and radiation treatment.

Look Good...Feel Better is offered in a group setting, and provides participants with cancer education, information and support. Each woman will learn to apply makeup, using kits provided through American Cancer Society's partnership with the Cosmetics, Toiletry, and Fragrance Association and the National Cosmetology Association.

Space is limited, so call the American Cancer Society, 1-888-227-5445, option 1 to register. There is no charge for the material or the workshop.

For information, call the American Cancer Society 24 hours a day, seven days a week, at 1-800-ACS-2345 or visit the Web site at www.cancer.org.
