In recognition of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Beaufort Memorial Oncology Services will host a host a special Beauty Techniques Tutorial for breast cancer patients from 6 to 7 p.m., Wednesday, Oct. 12, in Classroom 350 of the Beaufort Medical Plaza at 989 Ribaut Road.
As part of the monthly Breast Cancer Support Group, this personalized workshop was designed for patients to learn beauty techniques tailored to their unique needs. Local experts will be available to demonstrate easy, step-by-step techniques for skin care and make-up.
This event is free, but registration is required by visiting BeaufortMemorial.org/SupportGroups.
Breast cancer patients are also invited to participate in the monthly support group, scheduled for the second Wednesday of every month. The hospital also hosts a support group for all types of cancer on the fourth Wednesday of every month.
“Hearing the word ‘cancer’ can be completely life altering and terrifying. It is very common to feel lost and alone during this difficult journey, said oncology social worker Kianna Reese, LMSW. “We hope that, in offering this group exploration of the emotional elements of a cancer diagnosis, we will create a safe space for patients to feel like they are able to be found again – to lift one another. Ultimately, this group is a pathway to finding meaning and purpose again beyond a cancer diagnosis.”
