Because of their illness and treatment cancer patients may have to cope with changes in their physical appearance. The project “Goed verzorgd, beter gevoel” offers them assistance in this aspect. Specialized cosmeticians can give them advise or relaxing massage.
Also, patients can participate in a workshop which is given five times per year, where they get advise and instructions on appropriate care for their skin and make-up.
For VUmc patients this service is free.
