Frame of Mind 4/18/07 Makeover
Jessie Greenwood hadn’t been to church for six weeks, she was so upset with what her cancer treatment had done to her.
“Since I’ve been going through this chemo, it really drags you out, makes you look tired and worn,” the Maywood resident said.
She’d lost 25 pounds through this round of chemotherapy, her third cancer treatment since 2002. Church had been there for her, helping her keep the faith.
“I’ve never felt bad about myself, except with how I look,” Greenwood said.
She was working on her look in the lobby of Gottlieb Memorial Hospital’s Marjorie G. Weinberg Cancer Care Center in Melrose Park. She’d been feeling better of late, she said, and decided to come to Gottlieb for a makeup lesson from the “Look Good … Feel Better” program.
“I’m going to do this,” she said. “Sunday morning, I’m going to get up and do this stuff. I know I look better, and I feel better.”
