NOTE: Eligibility!!

Women who are currently undergoing treatment for a cancer diagnosis (chemotherapy, radiation therapy, or other forms of treatment). Registration is required. Only program participants may attend the workshop. Due to confidentiality and comfort level of the patients, as well as space restrictions, this protocol is necessary. This ensures that the participant receives full attention to gain the skills and confidence for increased independence. While this is not a standard policy, a patient may attend more than one workshop; however, she should bring her cosmetic kit with her to the additional workshop. She may not receive an additional kit. Patients with a recurrence of cancer and who are receiving another round of treatment may attend another workshop and receive a new cosmetic kit.
