About Wistia
 
 
 
 
 
 

We have been successfully helping people with cancer for over 35 years, with our pioneering Bristol Whole Life Approach.  We can show you how to live well with cancer and take back control of your health and wellbeing –  before, during and after treatment.

Our range of services are free of charge to adults with a cancer diagnosis and their supporters. However, as a charity we rely on donations to fund our work, both at our National Centre and across the UK.

Look Good Feel Better – Helping Women to Face Cancer with Confidence

 

Look Good Feel Better is the only international cancer support charity providing practical support for women and teenagers struggling with the visible side effects of cancer treatment.

 

Finding out you have cancer is traumatic and daunting.  The added stress of the appearance related side-effects can be demoralising and feel overwhelming. This can have serious consequences on   self-esteem and confidence at a time when a positive attitude is vital.

 

The Look Good Feel Better free skincare and make-up Workshops and Masterclasses are held all over the UK for people undergoing treatment for any type of cancer.  The two-hour sessions are led by trained beauty volunteers, who share tips and techniques to help with eyebrow and eyelash loss and changes to the skin.

WHAT IS THE MADE FOR LIFE FOUNDATION?

 

Amanda Barlow established the Made for Life Foundation (registered charity 1138846) in 2009 to provide support for people diagnosed with and recovering from cancer. Made for Life organises days filled with holistic complementary treatments, organic makeovers, nutritional advice, art therapy, meditation and relaxation techniques along with time for sharing and hugs.

 

Having been diagnosed with cancer; the patient, their close family and or carers will quickly understand that receiving such a diagnosis can be a traumatic and life changing event. On hearing the news, people often report feeling sick, disorientated, very sad, angry, frustrated, scared, lost, isolated, in need of support and often unsure of what to do for the best.

 

We now have space in the wonderful Health and Wellbeing Innovation Centre at Treliske, Truro. Currently there is no Centre within Cornwall to provide these services. So our aim is to have a Made for Life Centre, which will continue providing support in the way of complementary services for people diagnosed and recovering from Cancer within Cornwall.

Cancer Lifeline South West -

A cancer diagnosis can have a far-reaching effect on people and their families. Post treatment is a time when people are expected to ‘get back to normal’ but for many ‘normal’ has changed.

The shock of the diagnosis and treatment wears off and the reality sets in. It can be a time when people feel isolated and alone.

We offer 3 day residential breaks for cancer patients – on their own or with a relative or friend. The group is limited to 10 participants and is facilitated by 3 appropriately trained counsellors who will lead relaxation and meditation groups and help with ‘coping’ strategies.
