Pamper workshops help boost confidence in cancer victims
Published on 10/09/2012

A charity worker who helps cancer patients to feel beautiful again has described how her job seemed more important than ever after her granddaughter was diagnosed with leukaemia.

Liz Caplin told the Daily Record how she is part of the team at Look Good Feel Better and runs pamper sessions to help those overcoming chemotherapy.

The 65-year-old uses her beauty skills to provide confidence-boosting makeovers and give makeup tips to ladies that have lost their hair and seen their complexion change as a result of extensive medical treatments.

Talking about her granddaughter Brodie's battle with cancer, Ms Calpin said: "I've helped her draw in her eyebrows and do her make-up.

"She's a very brave young lady. All the women I work with are – they're incredibly brave."

Ms Caplin runs pamper workshops and is one of almost 2,000 volunteer beauticians across the UK who host the two-hour beauty sessions.
