OSF Beauty in You aims to empower women cancer patients

ROCKFORD, Ill (WIFR) --- The OSF Healing Pathways cancer resource center Beauty in You program invited women that are about to begin or are currently undergoing cancer treatment.

A licensed cosmetologist and hair loss consultant walked women through alternative ways to do their makeup, use wigs and overall just offer a space where they can ask any questions they might have.

"To provide a resource for women in our community who are having a difficult time navigating the physical side effects of cancer treatment and just the cancer journey in general," says program coordinator Amy Mullen.

The program is of no cost to women in the Rockford area. The center is planning on hosting the program every month.
