Looking Good, Feeling Better
Hi Ladies, how are you all? I am doing pretty good, round 3 of chemo next Friday and will then be half way through...yay!!
I just wondered if any of you have taken advantage of the "looking good, feeling better" programme run by the cancer council? If not, I would definately recommend you see if there is one in your area and take advantage. I attended last weekend and had so much fun!!
Firstly, you are with about 12 other women, ALL going through exactlt the same as you, so you don't feel alone, abnormal, or "different" Some till have their hair, some wore scarves, and some (probably) were in wigs! I worem wig, but about 20 minutes into the make over decided to take it off as it was easier with my bald head. I whisked it off and one of the volunteers nearly fell over, she thought it was my own hair!!
I had a lot of laughs, picked up some great tips, had a full makeover and came away with about $400 worth of free skin care and make up, all top of the range, este lauder, cliniquie, clarins etc!
But the main thing was, I had fun! I was also blown away by the fact that these workshops are run in every state, in 22 countries in the world, and in Perth alone this year, there are 96 workshops being run. It just shows, HOW MANY women are undergoing chemotherapy!
The volunteers are all beauticians and give their time freely and all the make up is donated by the cosmetic industry. I just can't speak highly enough of the programme!
Anyway girls, I washed my hair last night...so time to go put it on!! And off to the shops....Have a great weekend...keep smiling...and stay strong xxx
