Look Good, Feel Better

This week I had a wonderful experience with our youngest daughter Grace.  Right now I am bursting with pride and joy for the woman that she has become.  As many of you know that have followed my blog, I have been fighting stage 4 advanced cancer for a 17 months now.   It was a very hard thing for my children, I have five.  All of them have stood behind me through this time.  Grace is a hair stylist now, having a very successful career.  Had a client one day and was telling her about her Mom and the cancer battle.  The lady told Grace that she was involved in an organization called “LOOK GOOD, FEEL BETTER” Beauty, Courage, Confidence.  It is a program to help women who are dealing with cancer and the treatments involved with fighting cancer.   Going through this changes women in many ways one being how we look.  Grace listened to this woman and felt called to become a part of helping these women.  She took classes and with her abilities with hair makeup and even head wraps and wig care she felt she could do it.  She is a perfect fit and has a personality that will make the women smile, laugh and walk away encouraged. She decided to do something because of what her mom was going thru.  In some way, do something to help women like me.  This week she had a meeting at the Cancer center I go to every two weeks for my Chemo infusions. I got to be one of the women that she encouraged and taught how to wear their makeup to cover things that chemo can do to our skin.  She did a wonderful job.  I enjoyed it so much and it was great being in a room with other women who are experiencing the same struggles that I am.  She had us go around the room and tell what kind of cancer we have and where we are in treatment.  Everyone was different.  A thirty-eight year old beautiful woman with 4 kids and breast cancer.  A 50-year-old with two different kinds of cancer , another with lymphoma.  But we all laughed and smiled as we followed Grace, watching her as she made up one of the gals.  We did it right along with her.  We were given a makeup bag with everything we needed to leave that place with a new lift in our step. Every one looked so beautiful! Grace also showed us many ways to wrap our heads. One of the ladies that Grace wrapped said she felt like royalty as Grace wrapped her pretty bald head.   We also learned how to dress with the changes our body might go through.  To share this time with my daughter Grace was something I will always treasure.  If you know any woman with cancer you might tell her about Look Good Feel Better. It is a part of the American Cancer Society.  This is a volunteer program serving more than 50,000 women each year who have cancer.Grace bw

The very least that I can do for our precious Lord Jesus. I am a wife to Jerry, my wonderful husband. We have 5 children, and 7 granchildren.
