For people undergoing chemotherapy, radiation or other forms of treatment for cancer, it often means a loss of their normal routine, and can also mean appearance related side effects, including changes to their skin. Many patients regain a sense of confidence and self by learning how to adjust their makeup routine. As part of an annual tradition, students from Brick Memorial High School PALS Club and Cheerleaders make a donation of makeup kits to a local hospital of their choice. This year, they gave their donation to the Inspiration Boutique, part of the J. Phillip Citta Regional Cancer Center at Community Medical Center. The kits, prepared by the students, include items such as mascara, blush and lipstick, and are being distributed to women undergoing cancer treatment. The Inspiration Boutique at the J. Phillip Citta Regional Cancer Center offers a variety of additional services for individuals affected by cancer, including free wigs, Look Good Feel Better workshops for women dealing with hair loss and skin changes, free hats, and much more.

    I received one of the bags from Brick Schools while I was going to Chemo. It truly made my day. I didn’t feel so alone. Many Thanks.
