SKIN ISSUES FROM CANCER TREATMENT CAN BE LIFE ALTERING AND DEBILITATING...
Skin issues resulting from chemotherapy, radiation, surgery, targeted and immunotherapies are very prevalent with very little help available. In fact statistics say that 85% of people who undergo radiation develop a MODERATE to SEVERE burn. 1 in 3 cancer survivors stated that the skin side effects they developed from cancer treatment NEGATIVELY affected their lives.

In the beginning ......
Massachusetts Esthetician, Holly Brown, Oncology trained, suffers from Multiple Sclerosis and Sarcoidosis. She founded Looking & Feeling FAB, Inc. after developing a rash from chemotherapy infusions. When reporting the rash to her Dr's, they responded with blank stares and silence. She knew there had to be something to help. But Holly soon found out there was no help to alleviate these devastating side effects leading to low self-esteem, isolation, and decrease in quality of life. Holly was determined to change this and in 2013 her dream became a reality when Looking & Feeling FAB, Inc. achieved nonprofit 501(c)(3) Public Charity status from the federal government.
Fast Forward to 2019 ......
