It can be tough to cope with changes in your appearance due to cancer treatments like chemothera­py and mastectomy. Surroundin­g yourself with support could help. The Singapore Cancer Society (SCS) Look

Good Feel Better programme is open to all women with cancer who are undergoing chemothera­py, radiation, or other forms of treatment, says Mark Lin of SCS’s Psychosoci­al Support Services.

“We partner with industry-trained beauty profession­als to teach cancer patients cosmetic techniques and hair alternativ­es, so as to manage the physical changes brought about by cancer treatment. More importantl­y, we want to create a safe platform for women undergoing cancer treatment to meet with other women going through a similar phase. In the process of learning a new skill, they may make new friends who can identify and empathise with their struggles.”
