Orange Regional Medical Center will host a free program of the American Cancer Society called "Look Good ... Feel Better."

It will take place Monday, Aug. 13, from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at Orange Regional Medical Center, 707 E. Main St., in Middletown in the outpatient conference room (located just inside the outpatient entrance).

The program is for patients who have begun or are about to begin a course of radiation or chemotherapy treatment and may have been advised by their physician that they may experience some temporary changes in appearance. Although the side effects may be upsetting, they are almost always temporary.

At this program, patients will learn how to cope with the changes and will be given tips on skin care, makeup application and wig and turban styling. When patients leave the program, they will have learned how to "Look Good ... Feel Better!"
