Maury Regional Health launches Feeling Fabulous program for women facing cancer

05.14.2018

COLUMBIA, Tenn. — A diagnosis of cancer impacts a patient in a multitude of ways. In addition to the anxiety about one’s health, the side effects of treatment often impact appearance and self-esteem. To address this concern, Maury Regional Health is teaming up with local stylists to launch the Feeling Fabulous program on June 4.

Feeling Fabulous is a free program funded by the Maury Regional Health Care Foundation that helps women with cancer look and feel more confident as their body experiences changes as a result of cancer treatment. Local stylists who volunteer their time provide participants with information about:

  • Makeup techniques for hair loss and skin changes (includes a free makeup kit)
  • Skin and nail care
  • Wigs and other head coverings
  • Nutrition

The first program is scheduled on Monday, June 4 at noon in the Maury Regional Cancer Center located at 808 South James Campbell Boulevard in Columbia. Lunch will be provided and class size is limited. To register, call 931.490.7192.

“This program is integral to helping women through their cancer journey, enabling us to meet their physical and emotional needs during a difficult time. We are grateful to Ginger Moon and the stylists at Ginger’s Salon for facilitating this program and to the Maury Regional Health Care Foundation for funding the supplies. Without their support, we would not be able to offer this free program to women in cancer treatment,” said Dana Salters, administrative director of oncology services.

In the past eleven years, the Maury Regional Health Care Foundation has funded more than $2 million in programs and services for underserved and financially challenged populations. All donations directly benefit the community through the programs and services funded by the Foundation, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization.
