Feel Better Month

Feel Better Month runs throughout September and encourages all Australians to acknowledge the importance of self-confidence and a positive mindset, in support of the thousands of cancer patients who will benefit from the Look Good Feel Better program this year.
Event Feel Better Month Hero

If you’re a cancer patient, we have an amazing schedule of free virtual workshops planned for you! And for those of you in our community of supporters, we would love your help in raising awareness and funds to ensure that all Australians undergoing treatment for cancer can benefit from the Look Good Feel Better program, free-of-charge.

Here’s how you can get involved in Feel Better Month throughout September:

For Patients

Feel Better, online!

In addition to face-to-face workshops and our regular women’s, men’s and teens virtual workshops on skincare, cosmetics and headwear, a range of specially curated, unisex virtual workshops will be running throughout Feel Better Month.

Experts in their fields will be hosting the sessions covering topics such as hair loss, regrowth and colouring; nail care; cosmetic tattooing; scanxiety; art therapy; scar and lymphatic massage; and meditation.

Check out the full schedule for the month below, noting that all times are AEST / 'Sydney' time.

To secure your place in a workshop, visit our workshop registration page and be sure to follow us on Instagram and Facebook - @LGFBAustralia - for updates and extra content!


For Supporters

Boost that confidence

For the whole month of September at David Jones, and from Friday 1st to Friday 15th of September at Myer, $1 from every lipstick or lip gloss purchased in-store or online will be donated to Look Good Feel Better in support of Feel Better Month.

Purchase a pop of colour for your pout, and know you’ll be giving yourself and those undergoing cancer treatment a much-needed boost in confidence!

Visit David Jones here and Myer here. And don’t forget to post a selfie with your new lippie tagging @LGFBAustralia with #LGFBAustralia and #FeelBetterMonth2023

Get creative

Why not get creative and hold your own fundraising activity in support of Look Good Feel Better any time throughout the month?

Take a look at our fundraising guide to get some ideas, and register your event here.

And if you're a brand or retailer, have a chat to us about partnership opportunities throughout the month. Whether it's a round-up with each purchase, a donation of a portion of sales throughout the month, or a special 'Feel Better' product or service, we'd love to hear from you at shaqenvfvat@ytso.bet.nh

Give a gift in celebration

If you are celebrating a special occasion in September, asking your family and friends for a donation to Look Good Feel Better rather than a gift is a remarkable way to make a difference.

Your generosity will allow more Australians to participate in the Look Good Feel Better program, helping them face their cancer diagnosis with confidence – an extra-special cause for celebration!

You can choose to create a fundraising page to share with friends and family (and select Cancer Patients Foundation Limited as your charity), or simply make a one-off donation by visiting our donation page.

Host a fundraising event

Golf days, long lunches, or morning teas - you can turn any fun event with friends, family, or colleagues in September into a fundraising activity!

To talk about your ideas, or to get some help with coming up with one, get in touch with our fundraising team at shaqenvfvat@ytso.bet.nh.

Spread the word on social media

Help us ensure as many people as possible know we're here to help - throughout September, spread awareness of the Look Good Feel Better program and its ability to boost the confidence of those undergoing treatment for cancer.

You can share one of our posts, or take a selfie wearing your favourite lipstick or lip gloss, tag a friend or family member who helps you ‘Feel Better’ and more confident, and share using @lgfbaustralia and #FeelBetterMonth2023.

For added support, select a lipstick available from David Jones or Myer and mention their $1 donation for every lipstick or lip gloss sold during Feel Better Month.


As an independent not-for-profit organisation, not affiliated with any other cancer charity or support service, and with no government funding, it is your generosity that allows us to provide our program free-of-charge to cancer patients across the country.

Thank you for supporting us throughout the month.
