World Cancer Day
Help Look Good Feel Better support World Cancer Day (February 4, 2018) and its mission to reduce the global burden of cancer by increasing confidence and positive self-image.
Increasing Confidence on World Cancer Day
To commemorate World Cancer Day (Sunday, February 4), Look Good Feel Better is excited to share the results of its 2017 Global Patient Survey, which evaluates the impact and satisfaction of the program among its participants. In particular, the survey assesses the extent of the program’s impact on patient confidence and self-image, as a result of teaching beauty techniques to address the appearance side effects of cancer treatment.
This year’s survey results indicate that the Look Good Feel Better program creates a significant boost in self-confidence among women in cancer treatment, and delivers tangible value in improving self-image. With patient satisfaction scores above 90 percent, the vast majority of program participants would highly recommend the Look Good Feel Better program to other women in cancer treatment.
“The mission of World Cancer Day is to ‘explore how everyone can do their part to reduce the global burden of cancer,’” said Louanne Roark, executive director of the Look Good Feel Better Foundation.” By so effectively addressing the appearance-related side effects of cancer treatment, which can be a profound psychological burden on women in the midst of cancer treatment, Look Good Feel Better is certainly doing its part to support this mission.”
