• Rowan Regional Medical Center and the American Cancer Society offer Look Good … Feel Better workshops for female cancer patients in active treatment. Women learn beauty techniques from volunteer cosmetologists to help reduce the appearance-related side effects of cancer treatments, including a 12-step skin care and makeup program about skin changes using products donated by the cosmetic industry. Hair loss, wigs, scarves and other accessories are topics also covered.
Each participant receives a free LGFB make-up kit (a $250 value) with name-brand cosmetics for use during and after the workshop. A caregiver is welcome to attend the session with the patient. Registration is required. Scheduled sessions are on Monday, Jan. 9, and Monday, April 16, from 6:30-8:30 p.m., in the Linn Room at Rowan Regional Medical Center, 612 Mocksville Ave.
For more information or to register, contact Jill McNeely, RRMC Clinical Breast Navigator, 704-210-6927 or jtmcneely@novanthealth.org.
• The Cancer Crushers team of Shiloh United Methodist Church is collecting aluminum cans as a benefit for Relay For Life. From now through May, you may bring aluminum cans to the trailer in the grass parking lot at the church at 234 S. Main St. in Granite Quarry and toss your bag of cans into the trailer — no need to crush the cans first. For information, contact Sandra Earnhardt, 704-633-0259.
