Vanderbilt Breast Center Class

A breast cancer diagnosis can be frightening and stressful and the treatments for the disease often leave women with profound changes in their appearance. Just outside Cool Springs, The Vanderbilt Breast Center is now inviting cancer patients to a free counseling session designed to help women cope with cancer treatment side-effects like hair loss and complexion changes.

The Vanderbilt Breast Center’s “Look Good…Feel Better” class will be held Wednesday, November 17, from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m., at Vanderbilt Health One Hundred Oaks, 719 Thompson Lane, Nashville. The theme for the latest American Cancer Society-sponsored seminar is “Fall into Life,” featuring autumn-colored decorations and a light, healthy lunch.

During the class, participants learn how to draw their own eyebrows and apply makeup to give an impression of eyelashes. They receive tips on dealing with dry skin caused by radiation and chemotherapy. They also learn how to cover their heads and stay warm in stylish and inexpensive ways.

Each woman is given a free goody bag filled with brand-name cosmetics and other products worth hundreds of dollars. Seating is limited. For more information and to sign up, call 615-322-7563 or contact heather.r.lagore@vanderbilt.edu.
