🪞 Reflections: Reimagining Beauty 🪞
A Beth C. Wright Cancer Resource Center Beauty Program for Cancer Patients
We want to let you know about our new beauty program, Reflections: Reimagining Beauty. The program is available to patients actively in treatment that are experiencing appearance-related side effects such as hair-loss and skin sensitivity. Our professional hairstylist/cosmetologist, Rebecca Davis, personally works with participants in regaining confidence about their appearance. She will offer options for head-coverings (wigs, scarves, hats), instructions for skincare, and tips on make-up application. This is available to any cancer patient free of charge.
There are many types of head coverings including wigs of all styles and colors. All wigs are offered for free to the patients upon request. Following CDC protocols for reducing risk of COVID-19 spread, Rebecca is available by appointment to meet with clients at the Center to have the wigs fitted, trimmed, and to receive instructions on washing and care. These one-on-one appointments gives us flexibility to offer clients a more personal, private experience when it is more convenient for them.
The BWC has received a donation of cosmetics from Walgreens in Ellsworth to share with clients during each session. Individuals will be instructed in proper hygiene around products and the application of cosmetics. Sample lotions and cosmetics can be taken home afterward so that they may replicate what they have learned. Private sessions may be requested for this service as well.
If you have more questions or if you would like to make an appointment please call the Beth C. Wright Cancer Resource Center at 664-0339.
