American Cancer Society News Release
Twice yearly, Haunani Kamakana, patient navigator at Molokai General Hospital, organizes the American Cancer Society’s “Look Good…Feel Better” class for Molokai ladies undergoing cancer treatments. On Nov. 19, Haunani surprised class instructor, Suzette Kahana, with a special coffee hour attended by 15 former and current cancer patients of Molokai.
Anna Mayeda, senior pepresentative of community engagement for the American Cancer Society, presented Suzette with the Look Good…Feel Better four-year Service Award for her dedication to helping women with appearance-related side effects of cancer treatments. Suzette hopes to continue volunteering for this program for many more years as Molokai’s only certified Look Good…Feel Better facilitator.
Ladies not only learn how to cope with skin changes and hair loss using cosmetic and skin care products, but enjoy themselves in a supportive environment. The class is free of charge and each participant receives a free cosmetic kit. For more information, contact the American Cancer Society on Molokai at 553-5154.
