Cancer is a four-letter word and that word, is hard.
October was breast cancer awareness month and November is pancreatic cancer awareness month. The Los Alamos Council on Cancer assists men, women and children with free resources, advice and a kind word.
While the Council on Cancer was founded in 1956, their members still work at full speed, to provide resources to those who have been affected by cancer.
One of those resources sponsored by the Council on Cancer, along with the United Way of Northern New Mexico is Look Good, Feel Better.
The meetings begin with a short video presentation by the American Cancer Society and free gift bags for each client.
The bags are filled with a variety of free products to assist those who have undergone — or are currently going through treatment — with head to toe pampering.
There are products by Cover Girl, L’oreal, Mary Kay, Bobbie Brown, Esteé Lauder and even Chanel. These major companies took the time to donate products for those going through what may be the most difficult time in their lives.
The goal isn’t for the women to feel like they need to wear makeup or make themselves look better, but to allow them to have some time to remind themselves that they are still beautiful women, that deserve to shine.
