Activities that do good

The Foundation offers a variety of activities in its Regional Centers and online, for people with cancer and their loved ones.

Whether it’s to keep you in shape, talk to people, maintain good self-esteem or equip yourself to cope better with cancer, you will find the service or activity that suits you and that will do you good.

Look Good Feel Better

The program’s workshops of Look Good Feel Better help women with cancer overcome the effects of treatments on their appearance. Using cosmetics and hair alternatives, women can again take charge of their looks, adopt a more positive attitude while facing cancer and feel better about themselves.

Under the direction of a team of volunteers specialized in skin care, participants learn special make-up techniques and hear practical advice on skin and nail care, on the hygienic use of cosmetics and hair alternatives.
