“I lost a piece of who I was. I would walk by the mirror and did not recognize myself,” she said.
“我失掉了自己的一部分,走到镜子面前,我会认不出自己来。”

When Cathy Davelli started chemotherapy for breast cancer, she knew her body would change. What she did not expect was the emotional toll this would take on her.

Millions of women who undergo chemotherapy around the world face the harsh reality of hair and weight loss and skin damage. But many are turning to "Look Good, Feel Better;" a program that teaches women simple beauty techniques so they can once again not only look better physically but also feel stronger emotionally.

Created by the Personal Care Products Council and supported by the American Cancer Society, the "Look Good, Feel Better" program has been running free beauty classes across the United States since 1989. Makeup artists and hair stylists teach cancer survivors how to put on makeup and cover their bald heads in flattering ways.
