Look Good…Feel Better is a free program by Fairfield Medical Center designed for women undergoing cancer treatment. The class helps participants manage the appearance-related side effects of their treatment. Instructors trained by the American Cancer Society teach women about beauty techniques such as skin care, makeup application, wig styling and ways to wear a scarf. Lead instructors are certified every two years.
Women are taught how to deal with the loss of eyebrows and lashes, as well as shown how to apply makeup to give the illusion of both. In addition to learning about makeup and skin care, participants also learn how to pick out and style wigs, the different ways to wear scarves and how to tie a T-shirt wrap.
The mission of Look Good...Feel Better is to help women feel better during their cancer treatment by improving their self-esteem and quality of life. The class is offered by Fairfield Medical Center in partnership with the American Cancer Society.

As a local gospel quartet member, there is nothing John Fortner loves more than traveling to different churches to share his love of music.
However, since his diagnosis with stage 1 colon cancer in January, John has been doing more than just singing at these concerts: He’s been sharing his personal story to raise awareness about getting screened early.
