By WKTV News

UTICA, N.Y. (WKTV) - The "Look Good, Feel Better" program has provided patients suffering from Cancer with a way to lift their spirits during the often difficult treatments.

The program provides free care packages and makeup tips to people suffering from the illness, and helps them to overcome the often unpleasant side effects from the treatments helping to save their lives.

It is put together by the American Cancer Society, the Professional Beauty Association, and the Personal Care Products Foundation.

"They put together our personal kits with makeup and skin-care in them," said volunteer cosmetologist, Christina Rucco. "That is a gift to our patients who come in. 

The program is about two hours long and we go through skin-care, makeup, weight care, and we also do scarf tying.

This is the 30th year that the Look Good, Feel Better program has been going on, and it takes place on the second Monday of each month from Noon-6 p.m. At the American Cancer Society on 100 Lomond Court in Utica.
