How is Look Good Feel Better funded?
LGFB receives no government funding. Our member companies and brands provide product and professional support and they help us fundraise. In addition, a large portion of our income comes from independent fundraising by individuals, companies, community groups and associations. A small portion of funding is received through trusts and grants within New Zealand.
My nails have become brittle. How can I care for them?
This is a common side effect of cancer treatment. Firstly, do not cut your cuticles – use cuticle remover instead. A good cuticle cream, massaged into the cuticles will help prevent dryness, splitting and hang nails. Wear gloves while doing household chores, especially when washing up as excessive exposure to water can lead to a fungal infection of the nail bed. Very dry nails can become weaker or more brittle during treatment. If you are undergoing chemotherapy do not use false nails. Use a good hand cream to regularly massage your nails and hands.
