Saw this on TV today...its a fab idea....beauty therapists offer there services as volunteers one afternoon every 2 months to women who have suffered with cancer.

Its a group meeting thing and the film shown on TV looked fantastic...

They offer help and advise on beauty tips...makeup, hair, wigs, ...etc....anything to make them look good and feel better.

It doesnt mention nails on there but i am going to enquire to offer my services of a quick manicure, what feels good for the face has got to feel good for your hands...eh !!...

here is a link....and there are details on there for anyone who wishes to be a volunteer.

Become a LGFB volunteer

Brilliant idea.:hug:
I give my mum pedis but nothing else atm. Her natural nails are still fab even though she's had as much treatment as possible.
I have bought her 4 wigs but they are pretty uncomfortable for her because she has very little hair and not being a hair geek I've not got much idea tbh.
I would love to be able to be of help to someone else in this situation....sometimes a daughter is too close and a tech who can be a friend would be better.

My mum used to go to a hospice once a week where there would be therapist doing beauty, nails, massage etc......I know when my mum was alive her appearance was very important to her, even after she had an op to remove a tumour on her brain the next day, she requested all her jewellery and makeup was put back on, when she lost her hair she lost a lot of confidence and the manicure's and treatments she received at the local hospice really gave her a boost as she was a full makeup woman, what ever the situation. so if it can be more widely accessible then this would be fantastic.

I had a reply email this morning thanking me for signing up, but they dont currently have anyone doing nails and dont have any plans for the future either!
Oh well!

i do a similer thing with children hospices near me, pamper the carers who are there for rest bite care, it is very rewarding.
