Vilonia powder puff game benefits cancer patients

Vilonia Middle School recently presented a $1,000 donation – proceeds from a powder puff game – to the Conway Regional Health System’s Fabulous You Boutique.

Trudy Hightower, outreach coordinator at the Conway Regional Women’s Center, accepted the donation from Vilonia Middle School Coach Jacob Roper in support of women battling breast cancer.

The money will be used for the Fabulous You Boutique which provides women with wigs, turbans and hats to complete their ensemble. This free program is funded through the Conway Regional Health Foundation.

The boutique complements The Look Good Feel Better program at Conway Regional. It offers the assistance of cosmetologists to help cancer patients with makeup application, dry skin and discolored nails to boost self-esteem, making them look beautiful and feel better about themselves.

Look Good Feel Better is a free, non-medical, product-neutral program offered by Conway Regional in partnership with the American Cancer Society, The Cosmetology Association and The Cosmetic, Toiletry, and Fragrance Association.

For information about the program, contact Hightower at 501.513.5230.
