Survey for Black, Indigenous and Women of Colour Facing Cancer on Appearance-Related Changes from Treatment

Look Good Feel Better offers workshops for all women facing cancer, providing tips and techniques including skincare, makeup, how to tie scarves and what to consider if choosing a wig or breast form. The current workshop offerings are generic, meaning leaders and participants are from a variety of ethnocultural backgrounds.

Our workshops are offered both in-person and online. In-person workshops take place in a hospital or cancer centre. Typically, 6 to 12 women join each workshop, which is led by 3-6 expert volunteers. Participants are encouraged to follow along each skincare, make up and scarf-tying should they feel comfortable. Online workshops are offered over Zoom with 10 to 20 women. Participants are encouraged to follow along with skincare and makeup application and scarf tying techniques but some also choose to simply observe with or without their cameras on.  

What delivery format would you prefer/have preferred?
Please share the reasons for your preference.
