Look Good, Feel Better

Part of the dearjohnnies mission statement talks about our belief that when you look better you feel better and can heal more quickly. This is the reason why it is important to bring your own hospital gown from our collection to your surgery, delivery, recovery or treatments. You will feel safe, secure, and clean wearing something that is your own. Not to mention our gowns add a bit of style and every nurse and doctor will pay you a compliment!

Another organization on the web has a similar mission. Look Good....Feel Better.

Look Good…Feel Better is a free, non-medical, brand-neutral, national public service program founded in 1989 and supported by corporate donors to help women offset appearance-related changes from cancer treatment.

There are now three versions:

Look Good…Feel Better
Group programs and other services for women in English in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. (International LGFB programs are also offered by our sister organizations.)

Luzca Bien…SiĆ©ntase Mejor
Bilingual group programs (English and Spanish) for Hispanic women in 19 locations: Albuquerque, Austin, Brownsville (TX), Chicago, Dallas, Denver, El Paso, Fresno/Visalia (CA), Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New York City, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Orlando, San Antonio, San Diego, San Francisco, and Washington, D.C. Spanish language materials are available nationwide upon request.
