Gae­lene Falconer has been in Taupo help­ing to lift the spir­its of women with cancer.

Falconer is the Look Good Feel Bet­ter Bay of Plenty tu­tor and her goal is to help with the vis­i­ble side ef­fects of cancer treat­ment, in­clud­ing hair loss, eye­brows, eye­lashes and other skin re­lated is­sues.

The ser­vice is based out of a por­ta­ble ship­ping con­tainer and has been mak­ing its way around New Zealand, to pro­vide use­ful ad­vice and help women con­nect with each other.

She said the two-hour class pro­vides an op­por­tu­nity to re­lax, have fun, feel spe­cial, do some­thing prac­ti­cal and be proac­tive.

Women are given gift packs to help them re­gain con­trol of how they feel.

‘‘It’s all about get­ting to­gether and hav­ing a good time laugh­ing and not think­ing about their jour­ney,’’ she said.

Falconer said events like th­ese pro­vide sup­port and al­low women to form re­la­tion­ships and al­lows them to feel like they aren’t do­ing it alone.

The pro­gramme is sup­ported and by the Cancer So­ci­ety of New Zealand and as­sisted by the Cos­metic Toi­letry and Fra­grance As­so­ci­a­tion of New Zealand(CTFA). A men’s pro­gramme may also be on the way soon.

‘‘There is noth­ing for men like this,’’ she said ‘‘It’s go­ing to be amaz­ing, watch the space.’’
