Cancer treatment often takes a devastating toll on a woman's body, which can lead to depression and poorer outcomes. For years now, a free program called "Look Good, Feel Better," has been helping women deal with the physical changes the disease can cause.

Trained make-up artists show them  how to care for changes in their skin and hair from cancer treatment. Patients also receive donated makeup kits with  about $300 worth of high-end cosmetics.
The  program is offered through the American Cancer Society, the Personal Care Products Council Foundation and the Professional Beauty Association/National Cosmetology Association.
It doesn't offer wigs, but provides guidance on how to care for and wear wigs and scarves.
