I went to a Look Good Feel Good program run by the local cancer resource group, the makeup industry and other organizations on Weds night. I was really looking forward to it. It topped even my expectations. The ladies ,all volunteers, were terrific. We had one on one with ladies helping us with our makeup and skincare and they pampered us a little too. These ladies all work in the makeup and skincare industry and some have been doing it for up to 10 years. We ended up with quite a bit of skincare and makeup products, all donated by the skincare and makeup companies, to take home.
I was the only one there that had actually lost all of my hair so trying on the wigs was wonderful and it made such a huge difference. I ended up getting 2 wigs, both slightly different but both looked equally good. Everyone was just so positive and complimentary. I got so much out of it, not just the products but feeling really good about myself. Talking to the other girls too was good, seeing how others cope, some are just about to start on their treatment journey, some are coming out the other side of treatment and ones like me still half way through treatment.
I had a CT scan on Wednesday morning and will find out the results next Thursday when I see the Oncologist. Hopefully it will hold some sort of good news, "shrinking liver lesions" would be 3 good words to start with.
Had a Chemo session during the day as well and that didnt go so good, had a reaction to a drug and didnt cope well with that, it did pass by the afternoon though. They wont give me that one again.
The look good session at night made it all better though. ;)
Cheers to all
Don't cry because its over,
smile because it happened 🙂
