FRMC helps cancer survivors look and feel good


They say beauty comes from within, but sometimes looking good on the outside can make you feel good on the inside. 

Monday, Fairmont Regional Medical Center worked to give cancer patients and survivors that good feeling through “Look Good, Feel Better.”

The free program teaches female chemotherapy patients how to care for their skin, hair and nails.

Participants receive free makeup and a lesson from trained cosmetologists on how to tackle side effects of chemotherapy and radiation. 

“When you’re taking chemo, the more you’re around people, especially other people that are going through or have been through what you’re going through, then it’s a lot better because they understand. I say get out and do as much as you can when you’re able to,” said Donna Slamen, ovarian cancer survivor and class participant. 

The American Cancer Society is one of the organizations that puts on Look Good, Feel Better.
