Making a difference to cancer patients’ lives

Kathy Parr with patients and volunteers from Look Good…Feel BetterSt John of God Murdoch Hospital was awarded the WA Venue of the Year by community service program Look Good… Feel Better for the second time in three years.

Look Good… Feel Better is dedicated to teaching cancer patients how to manage the changes to skin, hair and general appearance that may occur as an effect of cancer treatment.

Coordinator Footprints Day Centre Kathy Parr says 10 to 20 women attend the free sessions held at the seminar room at the Murdoch Community Hospice each month.

“These women often arrive feeling quite anxious, but within a short period of time, their anxiety turns to chatter and laughter thanks to the expertise of the volunteers running the sessions,” said Ms Parr.

“We have supported Look Good…Feel Better for many years and we look forward to continuing to help them provide this wonderful service to our community.”
