Women with cancer enjoy pampering

ON Monday, The Women’s Health Centre in Gladstone hosted the Look Good ... Feel Better program for people living with cancer.

Gladstone was fortunate enough to be involved in the nationwide program with up-market and prestigious products on offer to all of the ladies in attendance.

Organiser Kathy Corones said the event had the biggest turnout yet, with ladies as young as 28 and as old as 70 years.

“It was a wonderful event. We had eight ladies participate with the most fantastic range of products I have ever seen,” Mrs Corones said.

Not only is the event a chance to get pampered and boost self esteem but also a chance to meet other people in similar situations, network, laugh and share stories.

“Women had the chance to be pampered with great products and then get to take home the bag of goodies worth between $500-$600,” she said.

Mrs Corones said she felt lucky and very special to be a part of such a “unique and amazing program” in Gladstone.

“You get the chance to meet people at all different stages of their journey and it is a very humbling experience to be a part of,” she said.

Mrs Corones said the Look Good ... Feel Better program would not take place if it weren’t for the dedication of all the volunteers who make the program such a significant event.

The next workshop is set to take place in November, with the Women’s Health Centre hoping for another good turnout of participants and volunteers.
