Findings from a Look Good Feel Better Global survey released as World Cancer Day show the significant positive impact of the programs to enhance self-image for women in cancer treatments. According to the survey findings, women emerge from Look Good Feel Better 93% more confident in their appearance, as compared to before participating in the program.

Established in 1989, Look Good Feel Better is a free program that teaches beauty techniques to help people with cancer manage the appearance side effects of cancer treatment. Now in its 30th year, the program has served 2 million people globally.

This year’s global participant survey includes responses from more than 10,000 women gathered during 2018. Key findings include:

- Fewer than half of survey participants reported feeling very or somewhat confident in their appearance before attending a workshop. That increased to 93 percent following workshop participation.
- 95 percent of respondents appreciated what they learned, and 96 percent found value in the program to improve self-image.
- 94 percent of respondents around the world indicated that they felt supported by the other program participants.

The mission of World Cancer Day is to ‘encourage everyone to do their part to reduce the impact of cancer,’” said Louanne Roark, executive director, Look Good Feel Better Foundation. “We know that the appearance side-effects of cancer treatment can have a devastating impact on a woman’s psyche and self-image, and often affect her relationships with family, friends and colleagues. Look Good Feel Better is the way that the entire global beauty industry and caring volunteers and caregivers can and will stand beside these courageous women as they battle this disease.
